The evidence and guidelines presented in this article are meant to assist clinicians who manage children with FWS. However, physicians may choose to individualize therapy based on unique clinical circumstances or to adopt a variation of these guidelines based on a different interpretation of the evidence concerning these issues. No guidelines can eliminate all risk nor confine antibiotic treatment only to children likely to have occult bacteremia. The optimal management strategy reduces risk to a minimum at a reasonable cost and can be used in most practice settings.
