Pneumonia is a common and potentially serious illness that can affect people of all ages, but it is most dangerous for the very young, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. The condition is characterized by symptoms such as cough, fever, chest pain, and difficulty breathing.

  1. Bacterial Pneumonia: Caused by bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.

  2. Viral Pneumonia: Common viruses like influenza (flu), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and adenovirus can lead to viral pneumonia.

  3. Fungal Pneumonia: Fungi such as Pneumocystis jirovecii can cause pneumonia, particularly in individuals with weakened immune systems.

  4. Aspiration Pneumonia: Occurs when foreign substances, such as food or gastric juices, are inhaled into the lungs.

  1. Cough: Often producing phlegm.
  2. Fever: High body temperature.
