[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Community acquired pneumonia still remains a significant cause of childhood morbidity and hospitalization in developed countries. Despite of two recently published official guidelines, British and American, for the management of community acquired pneumonia there remain some doubts about which child should get antibiotic treatment and which antibiotic treatment to use. The duration of antibiotic treatment and the criteria for hospitalization need also to be better defined. These guidelines could be an excellent basis for making a national consensus about management of childhood community acquired pneumonia in Croatia according to the paediatric health care standards and facilities in the country, and local bacterial susceptibility data.
