C-reactive protein (CRP) was estimated in 75 cases of clinically diagnosed neonatal infections and the results were compared with bacterial cultures. CRP test was positive in 77.33% cases whereas bacterial cultures were positive in 58.66% cases. A positive CRP test was observed in 14 cases where the bacterial culture was negative, CRP test was highly sensitive, specific and reliable in cases of septicaemia but less reliable in cases of localized infection. CRP was not detected in 20 healthy neonates.
