    Although some investigators have concluded that BAL provides the best reflection of the lung’s bacterial burden, both quantitatively and qualitatively, others have reported mixed results with poor specificity of BAL fluid cultures in patients with high tracheobronchial colonization. , using a protocol based on postmortem lung biopsies, the results obtained by quantitative cultures of BAL fluid proved to be as useful as those of PSB cultures (79). Although a few more microorganisms that were not present in lung tissue were grown from lavage specimens as compared with PSB specimens, there was a strong correlation between the concentrations of organisms grown in cultures of BAL fluid and lung tissue specimens (see Fig.

    However, several constraints specific to the evaluation of any procedure used in the diagnosis of bacterial pneumonia must be respected even when using a model in which the gold standard includes both histological features 18 Chastre, Fagon, and Trouillet and quantitative cultures of lung tissue. First, diagnostic methods based on microbiological techniques can only document, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the bacterial burden present in lung tissue. By no means can these techniques retrospectively identify a resolving pneumonia, at a time when antimicrobial treatment and lung antibacterial defenses might have been successful in suppressing microbial growth in lung tissue.
