WHAT is Bacterial Pneumonia?

Bacterial pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs due to bacterial infection. Different types of bacteria can cause pneumonia. This type of pneumonia can occur in both lungs, one lung, or one section of a lung.

Bacterial pneumonia develops when your air sacs experience inflammation, which might cause them to fill with fluid. This can make breathing become difficult and cause the lungs and the rest of the body to not get enough oxygen.
