[Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in children with tuberculosis of the respiratory organs].

Abstract

Cases of pneumocystic pneumonia were recorded among children with tuberculosis of the respiratory organs. Epidemiological and clinicoroentgenological characteristics of pneumocystic pneumonia in 15 children at the age of 3 to 15 years with tuberculosis of the respiratory organs are presented. Peculiar clinical manifestations of pneumocystic pneumonia in the children of the preschool and younger school ages were studied. Special laboratory methods and in particular the immunofluorescence test (IFT) made it possible to detect the pathogen in the contents of the respiratory tracts, as well as immunological shifts in the children.
