Community acquired pneumonia in children


Pneumonia in children of all age groups has a strong association with morbidity. This highlights the importance of studying the clinical and diagnostic aspects of community-acquired pneumonia. For those suffering from pneumonia, general biological patterns, in some cases, outstrip morphological changes in tissues and therefore biological changes can be considered as early signs of the development of the disease. Through this research, we looked at the possibility of using proinflammatory cytokines in the urine, by a non-invasive method, to assess the prognosis of community-acquired pneumonia in children.

A new publication of interest:

“To study the possibility of using IL-6 content in biological fluids in order to predict the severity of community-acquired pneumonia in children.”
