Abstract Objectives: Describe the epidemiological profile of the primary bloodstream infections associated to central venous catheter in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, year 2010. Method: Descriptive and retrospective study. A database was created on Epi_info program to index data and further analysis. Results: 16 newborns (NB) evolved to BSI associated to CVC; 66,7% were pre terms and 92,3% received parenteral nutrition. The peripheral inserted catheter was the most used (55,6%), followed by umbilical venous catheter with 22,2%. Among the isolated microorganisms, 42,8% were Negative Staphylococcus Coagulase, 28,5% were Staphylococcus Aureus and 14,2% were Candida Albicans. Conclusion: Became clear that the conditions related to the NB, to the pregnancy and to the CVC are factors that predispose these customers, and reinforce the need of specific programs to prevent and control the BSI.
