Objective: Neonatal sepsis is a clinical condition that results in serious morbidity and mortality unless urgently diagnosed and treated. Obtaining the results of blood cultures to determine the causative agent in sepsis is a time-consuming process. The CRP/albumin ratio is an inflammatory marker that has started to be used in recent years. The aim of our study was to investigate the relationship between CRP/albumin and Gram-negative bacterial sepsis in neonates.
