Serious Bacterial Infections are Still with Us

Stanford T. Shulman, MD

Abstract

This October issue of Pediatric Annals, organized by the redoubtable Dr. Mike Marcy, is devoted to infectious disease emergencies and includes excellent reviews of several serious bacterial pediatric conditions. These include fever without source in infants, acute sinusitis, severe methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection, acute bacterial pneumonia, and necrotizing fasciitis, which continue to cause serious childhood infections, in some instances, even more commonly than just a few years ago.
