Outcome of meningococcal septic shock in childhood
Yearly approximately 5000 children (0-18 years) are admitted to specialized pediatric intensive care units (PICU) in the Netherlands. Among these children, although relatively low in number, patients with meningococcal sepsis or septic shock form a well identified and special group with high mortality and morbidity.
