Abstract

Background: Previous reports on the behavior of procalcitonin blood levelsin diverse clinical conditions suggest that it is Dart of the activation of cellular immunity and is another acute-phase reactant. Objective: To compare procalcitonin with C-reactive protein, a well-known acute-phase reactant, in a series of acutely febrile pediatric patients andto review recent literature on procalcitonin. Methods: Procalcitonin and CRP levels were evaluated in 38 blood samples of pediatric patients who were admitted to the Dana Children's Hospital for evaluation of unexplained fever or for sepsis work-up. Results: The parallelism between procalcitonin and CRP was found to be highly significant (P<0.01). Conclusion: The rise of procalcitonin blood levels in febrile pediatric patients suggests that it is part of the acute-phase reaction, parallel with the CRP reaction.
