Abstract Neonatal infection (NNI) is a public health problem in developing countries where pediatricians and specifically neonatologists encounter many diagnostic difficulties. Having a precise and easily measurable biological marker, with a high sensitivity and a high negative predictive value, that can rapidly detect NNI, remains a great challenge. The aim of this study was to determine the place of serum procalcitonin (PCT) in the diagnosis and follow-up of bacterial NNI in resource-limited contexts.
