Pulmonary abscess is an infrequent but significant problem in children. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 45 children with documented lung abscesses admitted and treated at Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, over the 11-year period from January, 1982, to December, 1993, and report their presenting symptoms, bacteriology, clinical management and outcome.
