From the standpoint of pathology the number of patients dying from sepsis has been constantly increasing in the last 10–20 years. Diagnosis of this complex condition has become more difficult recently since it is not always possible to detect bacteria, fungi or viruses. This can be related to invasive medicine and intensive care following surgery and extensive burn.
