Abstract

Influenza becomes a rather serious disease when complications appear regarding the lower airways (bronchitis and bronchopneumonia) and when such complications affect patients who are "at risk" for their age (children and elderly patients) and coexisting diseases (cardiopathy, diabetes, nephropathy, immunodepression, asthma, chronic obstructive bronchitis). In particular, in this last category of patients who are at risk of comorbidities pathologies it is extremely important to plan an intervention strategy, to be evaluated individually, case by case, in order to be able to select the best antibiotic therapy for each patient and for the causative agent which is likely to be involved.
