Generally, the patient is afebrile. Clinical overlap between malaria and severe pneumonia in Africa children in hospital. These include extrinsic compression of a bronchi from a congenital malformation, lymphadenopathy, tumor, cardiovascular disease, web or ring , and intrinsic bronchial obstruction foreign body, edema, inflammation, bronchomalacia or stenosis, tumor, and mucous plug secondary to cystic fibrosis or asthma. A normal or minimally elevated white blood cell count with a lymphocytosis is typical. If the toddler or preschooler is febrile or appears ill, then a bacterial pneumonia is likely.

Overlap in the clinical features of pneumonia and malaria in African children.
Generally, the patient is afebrile. Ceftriaxone is not recommended in the neonate because the drug may cause displacement of bilirubin. The objective of the PERCH study is to provide etiologic information to guide prevention and treatment of community-acquired pneumonia, and we therefore modified the case definition to exclude children who have been admitted overnight to any hospital within the last 14 days. In the pediatric patient with nonresolving or recurrent pneumonia, other conditions need to be considered. The incidence of M. Pneumonia in the neonate.
Examination of the lungs may reveal rales or decreased breath sounds or a normal auscultation.
Financial support. So, this case report is to explore the possibility of managing children locally. Efficacy of nine-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine against pneumonia and invasive pneumococcal disease in The Gambia: randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. In the pediatric patient with nonresolving or recurrent pneumonia, other conditions need to be considered. Infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis can occur in areas where it is endemic and among children with immunodeficiency, so one should take into account local and regional epidemiology, individual immunization status, and underlying health problems that may influence which pathogens are likely.
