An infection in one or both lungs is Pneumonia. It causes inflammation in the air sacs in lungs which are called alveoli. The alveoli fill with fluid or pus and make it difficult to breathe. The germs that cause pneumonia are contagious. They can spread from person to person. Viral and bacterial pneumonia both can spread to others through inhalation of airborne droplets from a sneeze or cough.

There are a few types of infectious agents that can cause pneumonia.

  • Bacterial pneumonia
  • Fungal pneumonia
  • Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP)
  • Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP)
  • Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP)
  • Aspiration pneumonia
