Left panel. Relationship between body temperature on admission and procalcitonin levels on admission. (a) Relationship in patients with a documented viral cause of fever ( ). No statistical analysis performed. (c) Relationship in patients with a documented bacterial cause of fever ( ). Overall, (Kruskal Wallis), specified per PCT result: Normal versus Low (Mann-Whitney U test). Normal versus Moderate (Mann-Whitney U test), and Low versus Moderate (Mann-Whitney U test), (e) Relationship in patients with a likely infection ( ).
