Several Investigators have presented data indicating that the incidence of infections due to Gram-negative bacilli of enteric origin has increased in recent years (1-11). According to a previous report by members of our group (12), in the 15-year period 1940 through 1954 at the Mayo Clinic there were 137 cases of bacteremia due to such Gram-negative bacilli; in the five-year period 1955 through 1959, there were 113 cases. An attempt to define factors responsible for the apparent increased incidence of these infections and a reappraisal of methods of management appear to be warranted.
