The performance of scores did vary significantly between different studies in different healthcare systems. Value of severity scales in predicting mortality from community-acquired pneumonia systematic review and meta-analysis.

Chi-square test and univariate logistic regression were employed. Salih et al 7 recently reported that the criteria could be simplified by removing 3 infrequent variables leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, and hypothermiabut could not improve the prediction of mortality and intensive care unit ICU admission.

Therefore, this is the correct application of the minor criteria.
