In this prospective study we compared the efficiency of azithromycin and amoxicillin-clavulanate in treatment of acute sinusitis in children. Seventy patients were included in the age between 5 and 15 years. Beside ENT and pediatricians examination, nasal and throat smear on culture and antibiogram is taken from all the patients, as well as, X-ray of paranasal sinuses and laboratory findings, followed by check-up of nasal and throat smear and X-ray of paranasal sinuses. Azithromycin in single daily dose of 10 mg/kg during three days showed same efficiency as amoxicillin-clavulanate given three times per day in dose of 45 mg/kg during ten days...

In order to assess a cost analysis in the management of recurrent acute otitis media (RAOM) in children, we performed a prospective study with data obtained from 80 patients with RAOM, evaluated between january 1998 and february 2000. A good outcome with the antibiotic prophylaxis was obtained in 67 cases (83,7%), with either amoxicillin or azythromicin. Applying the model of assumptions the control of RAOM with ear tube insertion was obtained in 66 children (82,5%). Thus, the cost of antibiotic chemoprophylaxis was Euro 83,60 for the amoxicillin patients and Euro 116,60 for the azythromicin ones...

All cases of septicemia among neonates admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Ilorin, Nigeria between Jan 1995 and Dec 1996 were studied. Our aims were (1) to assess the incidence and microbial epidemiology of neonatal sepsis, (2) to generate baseline data and necessary research question for a proposed study on predictors of neonatal sepsis in our centre. Microbiology records of patients with confirmed septicemia was reviewed. Each of these babies had a single venous blood sample from a peripheral vein taken under aseptic conditions and before commencement of antibiotics...
