BACKGROUND:
To analyze predictors of mortality and poor outcome in cancer patients diagnosed with E. faecium bloodstream infection. 

METHODS:
Demographic, clinical and microbiological data were collected (January 1998-June 2011). 

RESULTS:
After multivariate analysis, presence of a urinary catheter was associated with a worse 7-day prognosis, and higher mortality at discharge. A high Charlson index was also associated with higher 7-day mortality. 

CONCLUSION:
Presence of a urinary catheter was associated with poor 7-day prognosis and higher mortality at discharge in the present series.
