Abstract C-reactive protein (CRP) and procalcitonin (PCT) are useful diagnostic tools to estimate the risk of serious bacterial infection (SBI) in febrile children at the emergency department (ED). The Lab-score combines these 2 biomarkers with urinalysis in an easy to use validated model. Kinetics of inflammatory markers suggests a differentiating role of duration of disease.
