Lower respiratory tract infection incorporates a spectrum of disease from acute bronchitis to pneumonia. The division between pneumonia and bronchitis is not always clear. However, patients with focal signs on clinical examination (e.g. reduced percussion note, bronchial breathing) should be regarded as suffering from clinical pneumonia even if the chest radiograph is normal.
