Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • Biomarkers have limitations. Do not apply biomarkers for patients with neutropenia, a recent history of antibiotic therapy, or significant comorbidities.
  • Obtain a thorough history and physical examination and develop a differential diagnosis before applying biomarkers.
  • Biomarker values are sometimes reported differently in the literature and may need to be converted.
