After birth the smooth transition to the extra-uterine environment is essential to help newborns survive the most critical period of life with good outcomes. We conducted a retrospective review of all neonates admitted in NICU during 24 months study period in GGMC and JJ NICU. Clinical determinants of neonatal sepsis in mother along with demographic clinical profile with laboratory co-relation was the main purpose of the study conducted. A single centre retrospective study for the correlation of C reactive protein with blood culture in evaluation and treatment of neonatal sepsis in a tertiary care neonatal intensive care unit.
