Pulmonary function following staphylococcal pneumonia in children.


Twenty three subjects with proven staphylococcal pneumonia (19 with empyema) were studied 12-25 years after the original infection. Clinical radiological, and lung function status and airway response to histamine inhalation was assessed. No clinical or radiological changes resulted from the original staphylococcal infection. No subject had physiological evidence of chronic lung disease and there was no evidence of an increased incidence of airways hyperreactivity.
