Figure 2. Percentage of infections (first and second) according to body site. From: Second Infections Independently Increase Mortality in Hospitalized Cirrhotic Patients: The NACSELD Experience.

The percentage distribution of first and second infections is shown. Blue bars represent the percentage of the first infections by site while red bars represent the second infections. There is a significantly higher percentage prevalence of respiratory (p<0.0001), fungal (p=0.003), and C difficile (p=0.05) in the second infections compared to the first while the opposite was true for SBP (p=0.045), Skin (p=0.02) infections and spontaneous bacteremia (p=0.036). UTI percentage prevalence was similar in the first and second infections (p=0.89). Resp: lower respiratory tract infections, UTI: urinary tract infections, Bact: spontaneous bacteremia
