Thoracic infections

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Pulmonary infections remain a major cause of morbidity and mortality both among patients with intact immune systems and those who are immunocompromised. Many of the articles that appeared during the last year were concerned with infections in the immunocompromised patient, especially those persons with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and those who had undergone organ transplantation. This is especially important since the populations of these groups continue to grow. Recent articles also have dealt with bacterial pneumonia, risk factors for infection, and the application of interventional radiologic techniques in thoracic infections.
