This clinical practice guideline is for children with cancer and/or undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The guideline reviews evaluation and management of fever and neutropenia, including initial empiric antibiotic selection, continued management of inpatients, and management based on culture results. Management of fever in hematology/oncology patients who have completed therapy and/or are on therapy but are not neutropenic is also discussed.
