Background: sepsis is a pathology that is increasing. A high level of knowledge, suspicion and ability of the professional is required. Objective: to describe aspects related to the updating on the diagnosis and management of sepsis in patients under one year of age. Method: a bibliographic review was made consulting the biomedical data bases of Medline, SciELO, Pubmed, Lilacs and Secimed, as well as theses repositories. Clinical essays, review articles and studies of epidemiological approaches were reviewed. Development: the diagnosis of sepsis is based on clinical criteria known as diagnostic criteria that stage the disease according to systemic inflammatory response syndrome, severe sepsis, septic shock and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Management based on aims and protocols is vital. A review of the international guides on management and updated treatment of sepsis was made to reach a consensus.   Conclusions: the prognosis of sepsis in pediatrics must continue to improve. Therefore, it is necessary to make the effort of increasing the quality of the attention of these patients and standing out a fundamental mainstay that is the ability of early diagnosing and treating sepsis.
