Socio-demographic and medical history data were collected using questionnaires and clinical examination, anthropometry and laboratory tests were performed. They were monitored daily until discharge or death during hospitalization while receiving care according to national guidelines. Predictors of death were assessed using Cox regression.Results: Of 400 children, 9.8% (n = 39) died during hospitalization. Predictors of mortality included diarrhoea at admission [hazard ratio [HR] 2.19, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.06; 4.51], lack of appetite [HR 4.50, 95% CI: 1.76; 11.50], suspected sepsis [HR 2.23, 95% CI: 1.18; 4.24] and skin ulcers [HR 4.23, 95% CI: 1.26; 4.17]. Chest indrawing [HR 5.0, 95% CI: 1.53; 16.3], oxygen saturation below 94% [HR 3.92, 95% CI: 1.42; 10.83] and confirmed HIV infection [HR 3.62, 95% CI: 1.69; 7.77] also predicted higher mortality.Conclusion: Infections were major contributors to mortality.
