The aim of this study was to determine the spectrum of bacteraemic microorganisms isolated during episodes of NF (NFEs) in AML patients in the Haematology Unit of the Universitas Academic Complex (UAC), as well as antibiotic susceptibility profiles of these organisms. Duration of NF, the time-span between chemotherapy and onset of NF, and the efficacy of antibiotics administered to patients, were also investigated.
