  • Incidence
  • This study was undertaken to re-assess the incidence and clinical relevance of post-sclerotherapy bacteremia. (springer.com)
  • While a direct comparison of the GABHS bacteremia incidence rate in Denver for 1989 and for previous years is not possible because of incomplete laboratory records, the 1989 rate is more than double the most recent population-based estimate of three cases per 100,000 persons per year from Charleston County, South Carolina (1985-1987) (CDC, unpublished data).
