Strategies for recognizing pneumonia look-alikes


Community-acquired pneumonia is a common diagnosis in children. Among the many children whose symptoms and/or chest X-ray is consistent with community-acquired pneumonia, it can be difficult to distinguish the rare cases of differential diagnoses that require specific management. The aim of this educational article is to provide clinicians with a series of questions to ask themselves in order to detect a possible differential diagnosis of pneumonia in children. The value of this approach is illustrated by 13 real clinical cases in which a child was misdiagnosed as having lobar pneumonia.
