  1. Legend: For each parameter we report median value (IQR), number and percentage of normal values in the case series. These data refer to blood samples which were collected within six hours of hospital admission. Laboratory data at admission were available for all the 15 patients, except for Procalcitonin, which was performed in 7 patients at admission
