From: Pneumocystis pneumonia in South African children diagnosed by molecular methods

Variable Adjusted odds ratio 95% CI p
Cotrimoxazole prophylaxis 0.2 0.07 – 0.5 0.002
HIV infection 8.2 3.8 – 17.8 < 0.0001
CMV blood PCR positivity 2.4 1.2 – 5.0 0.02
Fever 0.3 0.4 – 0.6 0.001
Respiratory rate >60 breaths per minute 3.5 1.7 – 7.0 0.0005
  1. CMV-cytomegalovirus; CI- confidence interval. Lactate dehydrogenase and oxygen saturation were not included due to missing data.
