The aim of our study was to investigate the apoptotic activity and necrosis of neutrophils of peripheral blood as objectification indicators of clinical course of community-acquired pneumonia in infants. There were examined 73 infants with community-acquired pneumonia. In infants with community-acquired pneumonia intensity of apoptosis increases, with the increase of disease severity apoptotic activity - decreases. Necrotic processes exhibit a positive relationship with the severity of this disease, which may serve for effective objectification of clinical course of community-acquired pneumonia in infants and to predict the severity of the disease in this category of patients.
