Abstract

Administration of ceftriaxone for 5 days has been shown to be highly efficient in the treatment of severe shigellosis in children. Our study, involving 40 children, demonstrated that a 2-day course of ceftriaxone was as beneficial as a 5-day course and constituted effective therapy for children with severe shigellosis.
