Abstract

The infant with fever without an obvious source upon physical examination offers a challenging clinical problem. A combination of detailed history, physical examination, and selected laboratory tests allows the clinician to discern which infants are at lower risk for bacterial illness. Implications for management and future research are discussed herein.
