Symptoms of Pneumonia: Causes, treatment and the association with the Rainy Season


Pneumonia is a respiratory disease characterised by inflammation of the lung parenchyma (excluding the bronchi) with congestion caused by germs or irritants. Thus it is a general term for lung infections that can be caused by a variety of germs (viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites). It is a very common disease affecting children but not much attention has been devoted to it in comparison to other ailments.
