The article presents a supplementary material for the May 2002 issue of the journal "Thorax."

They were revised and regrouped as: incidence; aetiology; primary care; clinical features; diagnosis; radiology; complications; antibiotic therapy; drug therapy; other management; nursing; prognosis; prevention. The rewritten searches were reviewed by Olwen Beaven in Liverpool who is an information specialist. The searches were run on an online database using Winspirs with Silverplatter as the interface. There were no language restrictions.
