Objectives  To quantify the degree by which moderate and severe degrees of malnutrition increase the mortality risk in pneumonia, to identify potential differences in the aetiology of pneumonia between children with and without severe malnutrition, and to evaluate the validity of WHO‐recommended clinical signs (age‐specific fast breathing and chest wall indrawing) for the diagnosis of pneumonia in severely malnourished children.
