The radiographic characteristics of pulmonary infection in children are many and varied. Although typical patterns are helpful in diagnosis, clinical and laboratory evaluation provide important diagnostic information. An understanding of the basic pathophysiology of infection and an appreciation of the anatomy of the child's growing lung help provide clearer, insightful, and more accurate radiological interpretation.
