Pneumonia is a severe infection, caused by bacteria, virus, fungi, or parasites, in the lungs. In pediatric patients, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Influenza virus, adenoviruses, rhinovirus, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are the most common virus and bacteria that cause pneumonia. The symptoms of pneumonia are cough, rapid breathing, chest pain, shortness of breath, fever, wheezing, stuffy nose, chills, loss of appetite, and labored breathing. A diagnosis is made by examining the child's appearance, breathing pattern, vital signs, and chest X-rays. The treatment includes the use of antibiotics, antiviral medicines, and oxygen therapy.
