Abstract

We examined recurrent Gram-negative bacteremia in a prospective cohort from a tertiary hospital. Seventeen (7.1%) of 241 bacteremic patients developed recurrence (median time to recurrence = 44 days; range, 9-217 days). Recurrent and nonrecurrent bacteremic patients did not differ in clinical characteristics and mortality.
