Neonatal bacterial meningitis (BM) is a devastating infection that occurs more commonly in neonates than in any other age group, and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, especially in developing countries. In this study, we aimed to develop a clinical risk score model, according to the available clinical syndromes and commonly laboratory tests, for screening BM among full-term neonates in a large-scale retrospective cohort, and prospectively validated the risk score in multicenter cohort.
