Abstract

Febrile neutropenic children with cancer were eligible for outpatient management with intravenous ceftriaxone therapy if they displayed selected low-risk criteria. Nineteen children were enrolled. All patients had sterile blood cultures, and only one of them was hospitalized because of persistent fever. This pilot study suggests that selected children with febrile neutropenia might be successfully managed without hospitalization.
