ABSTRACT: A study was undertaken to know the efficacy of C-reactive protein (CRP) vis-a-vis total leucocyte count (TLC) and ESR, in detecting postoperative infection in children. All the three parameters showed increased value in postoperative infection and declining value when the infection was controlled. But the rise in CRP value was many folds in comparison to TLC and ESR in cases where postoperative infection was noted. Hence CRP can be included as a rapid and sensitive test to detect postoperative infection and to monitor the efficacy of treatment.
