Analyze the clinical data, discover the risk factors and characteristics of infection and summarize the current precaution and therapeutic proposal. Result: 40(91%) out of 44 in total infants had infective symptom, and 68% of their mothers got infective symptom too, and only 38% of these mothers received antibiotic therapy, while the drug had low sensitivity and the duration of use was not correct. 35(88%) out of 40 infected infants received antibiotic therapy, while 5(12%) infants were unable to receive effective therapy due to the unobvious clinical symptom and early onset of death. The positive rate of clinical pathogen samples was 17%, most of which was Klebsiella pneumonia Streptococcus viridans and Escherichia coli.
