Abstract
Respiratory tract infections represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality despite the progress made in their diagnosis and treatment. Since the clinical presentation of a viral or bacterial infection is often similar, the identification of a biomarker that could guide the clinician whether or not to introduce an antibiotic therapy is crucial. C-reactive protein and procalcitonin are the most commonly used biomarkers as a diagnostic tool for respiratory tract infections. New biomarkers show promising results for assessing the severity of infection and identifying patients at risk for complications. However, the use of biomarkers has limitations and the diagnosis of a bacterial infection should not be based solely on the measurement of a biomarker.
