    Using a cutoff point of 10 4 cfu/mL to define a positive result, 47 of 57 diagnosed cases of pneumonia were identified by BAL, for a sensitivity of 82% and a specificity of 85%. Because BAL allows harvesting of cells and secretions from a large area of the lung, which can be microscopically examined immediately after the procedure to detect the presence of intracellular or extracellular bacteria in the lower respiratory tract, this technique is particularly well adapted to provide rapid identification of patients with pneumonia.
