Neonatal & Pediatric Infectious Disease

PIDS (Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society) is the world's largest organization of Pediatric Infectious Diseases specialists dedicated to the treatment, control and eradication of infectious diseases in Pediatrics. Neonatal sepsis can be caused by bacteria such as Escherichia coli (E coli), Listeria, and Group B streptococcus. However, this problem has become less common because women are screened during pregnancy. Most common infections in newborn are sepsis, pneumonia, and meningitis. There are many types of neonatal infections, including viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal. Many neonatal infections are minor and can be quickly reversed with proper diagnosis and care. However, some neonatal infections are very serious. The antibiotics commonly used to treat neonatal sepsis include ampicillin, gentamicin, cefotaxime, vancomycin, erythromycin, and piperacillin The three major causes of neonatal deaths worldwide are infections (36%, which includes sepsis/pneumonia, tetanus and diarrhoea), pre-term (28%), and birth asphyxia (23%).
