Abstract – Antibiotics are being extensively used in India today leading to emergence of multi-drug resistant pathogens, and increased incidence of fungal sepsis. A rational antibiotic policy needs to be in place to prevent the emergence of drug resistant strains. This review covers the common organisms causing neonatal sepsis in India, rationale for selection of antimicrobial agents, duration of therapy and the suggested steps to prevent antimicrobial resistance.
