The sepsis is often lethal, the mortality's ranks are identified among 25 to 70%, this depends on definition, severity and co-morbidities. The number of deaths by sepsis could be similar to myocardial infarct. Patients who get shock have 26-fold risk of death.
In preliminary studies have been observed, that patients with treatment with statin have minor incidence of severe sepsis. A retrospective study suggest the association between using statins and reduction of bacteriemia by Gram negatives and S. aureus.
There are many experimental studies which demonstrate the possible profit in sepsis. However there are no clinical prospective studies for determinate if statins are effective in management of sepsis. We design this study for demonstrate the utility if rosuvastatin in one kind of sepsis, abdominal sepsis.

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.
