Introduction: Bacteremia


Bacteremia: Bacterial infection spreading through the blood.

Bacteremia: An invasion of bacteria into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, the infection can spread to other parts of body, producing abscesses, peritonitis (inflammation of abdominal cavity), endocarditis (inflammation of the heart), or meningitis. Bacteremia may lead to sepsis or shock, causing a systemic illness with high fever, blood coagulation (thickening) and eventually organ failure. 1
