In Russia there are no unified approved criteria for diagnosing sepsis, and this fact complicating registration and statistical recording of its development and spread. Sepsis registration in neonatology is more difficult. The infection as a death-causing factor in full-terms newborns has been increasing for the last 10 years, even though there is the registration system, and its size is 0,51-0,60 per 1000 newborns. Early neonatal sepsis is characterized by intrauterine particularly intranatal ascending, contact or hematogenous infecting. We have analyzed the course of antenatal, intra-natal and neonatal periods in babies with congenital sepsis. To diagnose neonatal sepsis in clinical presentation of the disease three groups of criteria directly correlating with sepsis have been revealed.
