Sepsis in under 5 year olds: Guide for the General Practitioner

General Practitioners/Primary Care Physicians are frequently consulted to assess feverish children. Of these presentations, thankfully, most are self-limiting illnesses requiring minimal medical intervention. However, identification of children with potentially serious infections such as meningitis, pneumonia or urinary tract infections, which may lead to sepsis, is imperative in order to prevent avoidable morbidity and mortality in this vulnerable population group. Thus, appropriate diagnosis of infections in children within the primary care setting is challenging, and very important.
