The main aim of our study was to prospectively develop a clinical prediction rule that could be useful for improving the diagnostic approach to the patient with clinical suspicion of SNPT.
This negative association with SNPT was also found in other studies [7,8].
In the ideal situation, the criteria for diagnosis of SNPT should include other clinical and laboratory parameters (for example clinical evolution of patients and/or demonstration of AFB or caseating granuloma in histopatological specimens).
The developed score did not include other clinical tools that have been employed for the diagnosis of SNPT such as fibrobroncoscopy [9-13], the use of induced sputum [14-20], concentration techniques [21-24], auramine-rhodamine enhanced AFB detection [25,26], or Adenosine deaminase activity in sputum or bronchoalveolar lavage [27-30] or fine needle aspiration [31,32].
