Neonatal sepsis is one of the commonest causes of neonatal mortality in the developing world. The neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) today face one common problem of tackling sepsis and neonatologists remain constantly baffled by the changing patterns of microbial flora and their sensitivity patterns. With the neonatal services coming of age in Nepal this retrospective analysis spread over a period of six years has become very pertinent.
