Bacterial pneumopathy - Definition


Definition


Pneumopathy is the generic term used to describe conditions affecting the lungs. Bacterial pneumopathy, more often called bacterial pneumonia, encapsulate, therefore, all infectious diseases of the lungs caused by bacteria. The most commonly responsible bacteria is streptococcus, although other so-called atypical germs can also be the cause. Symptoms of a bacterial pneumopathy can vary depending on the type of bacteria implicated, but generally include high fever, chills, and a cough. Diagnosis is then confirmed by lung x-ray, which can reveal an infection localized in one lung lobe in typical cases. Antibiotics are required in the treatment of these conditions.
