|Abstract:||Epidemiological, clinical features and the pathogenesis of 60 cases of pseudomonas septicaemia, observed over a period of 7 years from 1975 to 1981, are described. The mean frequency of occurrence was 0.40 episodes per 1000 admissions and an incidence of 66 per cent was observed in patients with serious underlying diseases, such as haematological malignancies and neoplasia. Thirty-seven patients had received cytotoxic and immunosuppressive therapy and showed a marked leukopenia, and whenever the leukocyte count fell below 2000/mm3, the prognosis was significantly worse. The most common portals of entry were the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. The overall mortality was very high (75 per cent) and mainly related to septic shock. Apart from the very high frequency of this complication (24 patients, 40 per cent of all cases), a typical clinical picture, distinguishing pseudomonas from other Gram-negative septicaemias, did not emerge.|
