Abstract

We describe 4 sets of twins 5 days to 10 weeks of age with a serious bacterial or viral infection. The issue of the occurrence of a simultaneous infection in twins and the clinical dilemma of the appropriate evaluation and treatment of an asymptomatic co-twin of infants with a serious infection is discussed.
