Abstract

In a multicenter prospective study, 91 of 1025 febrile infants ≤60 days of age had urinary tract infections. Among patients with urinary tract infections and without traumatic lumbar punctures, sterile cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis was uncommon (0%-8%, depending on the definition) in contrast to earlier studies reporting this association.
