PURPOSE: Viral pneumonia comprises 200 million cases of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) every year worldwide with 20 to 40% requiring hospitalization. Assessing severity is important to reduce morbidity and mortality. Tools to evaluate disease severity in CAP include the PSI, CURB-65, IDSA/ATS guidelines, SMART-COP, and SCAP. Limited information is available in determining which score is most reliable to assess severity in viral pneumonia. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of severity scoring indices to predict outcomes in patients hospitalized with viral pneumonia.
