Pneumonia is a respiratory condition characterized by inflammation in the lungs due to a bacterial, viral or fungal infection. The body usually prevents these organisms from infecting your lungs but, at times, they may succeed in overpowering your immune system even if you are generally in good health.
In most cases, it occurs as a mild condition and clears up in two to three weeks. However, it can become very serious and may even prove fatal.
It is particularly dangerous for infants, young children, adults age 65 or older, and people who have a weakened immune system or underlying health problems.
