In choosing the articles to include in this Update, I turned to primary care physicians from Nassau County Medical Center in New York, ACP Journal Club Editor Brian Haynes, and internists from the community. Not only is a wealth of new information available about a broad range of therapy topics, but many recent studies have discussed new diagnostic methods. The articles chosen can be divided into four categories: asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; pulmonary infections, including pulmonary tuberculosis; interstitial and occupational lung diseases; and pulmonary embolism, solitary pulmonary nodules, and lung carcinoma. I focus on three articles from each of these areas. For a list of related readings on the topics discussed here, see the Appendix.
