Hospital acquired: Increasingly Gram-negative infection. Higher mortality rate than community acquired pneumonias. Co-morbid factors are important. Organism virulence and load, host factors and early administration of appropriate therapy all contribute to outcome. Pneumonia should always be considered in the elderly, the immunocompromised and in pyrexia of unknown origin (PUO). The prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) is increasing. Suspect it!

In a child pseudo-subluxation of C2 on C3 can cause confusion. In these cases, examine the spinolaminar line from C1 to C3. If the bases of these spinous processes lie Ͼ2 mm from this line an injury should be suspected. The distance between the anterior arch of C1 and the odontoid peg should be Ͻ3 mm in an adult and 5 mm in a child. B Bone: Assess for normal bony outline and density. An increase in density may indicate a compression fracture. C Cartilage: The intervertebral spaces should be uniform.
