Although endoscopic visualization may identify the pseudomembranes, it is rarely needed because of its cost and risk of perforation. When all attempts fail to identify the source of sepsis, laparotomy may be needed. However, laparotomy in the absence of localizing clinical and laboratory findings does not improve patient outcome [154}. Conclusion Because no single test has a high diagnostic yield for most common infections and fever is frequently multifactorial in origin, combinations of tests are often needed in a critically ill patient with fever.

Corynebacterium urealyticum is associated with an alkaline urine and renal stones [41}. Isolation of Staphylococcus aureus from the urine culture should raise the possibility of seeding from the bloodstream. Signs and symptoms of local inflammation, such as suprapubic tenderness and dysuria, are rarely found in critically ill patients with UTI. UTI should be suspected in bladder-catheterized patients with fever and leukocytosis. Cultures of urine obtained by aspiration from a sampling port on the catheter itself are probably adequate to diagnose UTI.

Elevations of white blood cell count, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin are neither sensitive nor specific for the diagnosis of cholecystitis. Elevated bilirubin may be seen as a manifestation of sepsis or multiorgan failure, where it is associated with the specific histologic finding of cholangiolar cholestasis (I0l). The presence of fever without an obvious source should alert one to consider acalculous cholecystitis, especially in the presence of risk factors such as a prolonged critical illness, recent surgical procedure, use of narcotic analgesics, and prolonged absence of enteral nutrition {94, 97).
