Aim: To identify clinical and biochemical factors associated with sclerema in infants with diarrhoeal illness, and their outcome.
Methods: In this case-control study, we enrolled 30 infants with clinical sepsis with sclerema (cases) and another 60, age- and sex-matched infants with clinical sepsis but without sclerema (controls) from among those admitted to the special care unit (SCU) and longer stay unit (LSU) of the Dhaka Hospital of International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B) for their diarrhoeal illness from May 2005 through April 2006. Sclerema as the dependant variable while hypoxia, hypothermia, C-reactive protein (CRP) level, serum total protein and prealbumin level were the major independent variables compared in the analysis.

Objective: To evaluate rapid and simple laboratory investigations to predict fatal outcome in infants presenting with diarrhoea and severe malnutrition.
Method: Retrospective chart analysis of infants with severe malnutrition and diarrhoea with (cases) and without fatal outcome (controls) admitted to the Special Care Ward in Dhaka Hospital at ICDDR,B between May 2005 and April 2006.
