For emergency physicians who frequently care for young children, the identification and treatment of potentially life-threatening systemic infectious disease represents a continuing challenge. Although most children have either self-limited viral or minor focal bacterial infection, a subset will have serious bacterial disease with potential for morbidity and mortality. This chapter provides an overview of the presentation and management of bacteremia, sepsis, and meningitis in pediatric patients in the ED. Although each is discussed separately, it must be kept in mind that these entities represent different points along a spectrum and may occur concurrently as a result of progression of disease.
