Abstract

A 7-year-old girl sustained a 62% third-degree burn. Serratia marcescens bacteremia and endocarditis subsequently developed. This infection was refractory to standard single and combination antimicrobial therapy. Sterilization of her bloodstream, with resolution of her tricuspid vegetations was achieved with cefotaxime sodium (HR 756), a new third-generation cephalosporin that has excellent activity against Serratia sp.
