pneumonia affecting alveoli/air space. lobe or segment opacification. treat with antibiotics pneumococcal pneumonia
pneumonia affecting brochial airway and alveoli. patchy opacification with air bronchogram. treat with antibiotics staphylococcal pneumonia
pneumonia affecting alveoli and surrounging interstitial tissue. linear or reticular pattern. treat with antibiotics viral or mycoplasmic pneumonia
peumonia caused by obstruction, tumor, stricture of airway or entry of foreign body into brochi(usually oral or gastric contents). patchy opacification. treat with corticosteroid and antibiotic aspiration peumonia
