Table 3 Distribution of patients and their mortality according to risk class

From: Non-HIV Pneumocystis pneumonia: do conventional community-acquired pneumonia guidelines under estimate its severity?

Risk groups Number of patients (%) Number of patients with respiratory failure (%) Mortality (%)

  1. *In PSI, relations of risk classes to net points are as follows:
  2. I: 0, II: 1–70, III: 71–90, IV: 91–130, V: >131.
