Abstract

Introduction: Non-fermentative Gram-negative bacterias (NFGNBs) are a major cause of life threatening infections in hospitalized children. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the demographic and clinical characteristics of NFGNBs infections and identify the risk factors and outcomes of bloodstream infections (BSIs) caused by carbapenem-resistant (CR) NFGNBs infections.
