Objective: C-reactive protein, total White Blood Cell count and Absolute Neutrophil counts are important inflammatory markers. These tests are highly significant as predictor of bacterial infection in febrile children.
Materials and Methods: We have collected data of 149 samples from pediatric indoor and outdoor patients. Samples were collected in both plain and EDTA vacuette. From plain vacuette CRP test was done and from EDTA vacuette total WBC count and absolute neutrophil count were done.

Results: In present study we have collected data of 149 pediatric patient. Total number of patient having bacterial infection were 101. Out of which CRP positive samples were 91(90%), 56(55.4%) samples show leucocytosis and 36(35.6%) samples show neutrophilia.

Conclusion: CRP test along with total WBC count and Absolute Neutrophil Count will be helpful for early prediction of bacterial infection and this test will guide clinician for better outcome of febrile children.

Keywords: C-reactive protein, Total WBC count, Absolute Neutrophil count, Bacterial infection, Children.
