Introduction: Early-onset neonatal sepsis (EOS) is difficult to diagnose clinically because the semiology of premature newborns is poor during the first days of life. This study aimed to identify predictive factors of EOS in neonates less than 37 weeks' gestational age in neonatal care at Louis Mourier Hospital, France.
May 17, 2022 · Neonatal sepsis is divided into two groups based on the time of presentation after birth: early-onset sepsis (EOS) and late-onset sepsis (LOS). EOS refers to sepsis in neonates at or before 72 hours of life ( some experts use seven days), and LOS is defined as sepsis occurring at or after 72 hours of life .

Early-onset fungal sepsis is an infrequent cause of neonatal sepsis, and risk factors include maternal fungal colonization and vaginal route of delivery. In the NICU setting, fungal infections, most commonly involving Candida spp., are more frequently associated with late-onset sepsis, with an incidence inversely proportional to the estimated gestational age (EGA) and birth weight.
