Abstract

Infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality among immune-compromised patients. The author discusses bacterial and mycotic infection prophylaxis in granulocytopenic patients with hematologic malignancies. Various strategies have been devised to prevent such infections including: combination oral antibacterial and antifungal prophylaxis with quinolones and newer azoles (fluconazole, itraconazole), high efficiency air filtration, protective isolation, and central venous catheter management. However, the emergence of antibiotic-resistant organisms continues to pose a major challenge to the successful eradication and prevention of infections in neutropenic hosts, and thus demands the development of innovative antibiotic approaches and infection control procedures.
