Drug Therapy in Pediatric Infectious Disease

Infectious diseases are the most common type of illness in pediatric patients. A substantial number of pediatric patient visits annually result in the prescribing of antimicrobial drugs. The emergence of bacteria resistant to commonly used antimicrobial agents is a growing concern. Information on newer drugs such as meropenem, which is active against penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae and gram-negative bacilli, and cefepime, which has activity against gram-negative bacilli including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and against gram-positive cocci is also presented. Most drugs approved for use in children have recommended pediatric doses.
