Abstract

<p>In this multicenter study, we identified an increased risk of 30-day mortality among hospitalized children with carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) isolated from clinical cultures compared with those with carbapenem-susceptible Enterobacteriaceae. We additionally report significant variation in antibiotic treatment for children with CRE infections with infrequent use of combination therapy.</p>
