Quick Reference

An inflammation of the lungs that can be a result of infection with bacteria (often Streptococcus pneumoniae or Klebsiella pneumoniae), although other bacteria can be responsible. Viral infections can also cause pneumonia, notably a coronavirus in SARS. In lobar pneumonia only some lobes of the lung are affected; in bronchial pneumonia the inflammation affects the bronchi or bronchioles.
