  1. Validity of a respiratory questionnaire to identify pneumonia in children in Lima, Peru.

    Article - En anglais

    We conducted a nested case-control study utilizing cases of clinical pneumonia identified in a community-based prospective surveillance study of children under 3 years of age in order to test the validity of a survey questionnaire.

    Three types of sex-and age-matched concurrent controls were selected from the surveillance population : acute respiratory infection (ARI) clinic controls, ARI community controls and healthy community controls.

    Survey interviews were scheduled at random for any of four consecutive 7-day periods after the diagnosis of the case.
