Pneumonia

Pneumonia

Pneumonia is an infection that inflames the air sacs in the lungs. It is most serious for infants and young children, people older than age 65, and people with weakened immune systems. Bacterial pneumonia, is the most common form, tends to be more serious than other types of pneumonia. The symptoms of bacterial pneumonia can develop gradually. In few cases pneumonia can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms are so variable and are often very similar to those seen in a cold or influenza. Complications of pneumonia are as follows: pleural effusion, empyema, lung abscess, bacteremia, septicemia, meningitis, septic arthritis, endocarditis or pericarditis.
