Quality assessment

This review primarily assessed the accuracy of tests for diagnosing serious bacterial infections in children aged three months or younger with a fever. The main conclusion was that combined clinical and laboratory criteria had fairly high sensitivity and hence reliability in not missing cases of infection. This conclusion seems reliable, but the low specificity of these criteria should be considered. Full critical summary

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
