Points and Pearls Excerpt

  • Consider occult pneumonia in infants and children with high fever and leukocytosis—even in the absence of respiratory symptoms—as well as in pediatric patients with fever and abdominal pain.
  • Suspect bronchiolitis in children aged < 2 years who present with upper respiratory symptoms that progress to lower respiratory symptoms and fever < 39°C (102.2°F).
  • An aspirated foreign body should be considered in patients with recurrent lobar pneumonias.
  • No one historical, physical examination, laboratory, or radiographic finding should be relied upon to diagnose pneumonia or to classify it as bacterial versus viral.
