Abstract

Bacterial pneumonia presents a real challenge in childhood, since its morbidity is impressive, its diagnosis is elusive and the treatment options are not always clear. Despite these difficulties, appropriate management based on an individual approach, good clinical skills and available antibiotics provides a rapid cure to most cases. The problems in diagnosis and treatment as well as the therapeutic approach to childhood bacterial pneumonia are discussed.
