This book addresses community-acquired pneumonia - the most common cause of death due to infection in industrialized nations and the most common cause of death in low-income countries. Although it can occur at any age, it primarily affects the young and elderly. The book covers the whole breadth of community-acquired pneumonia, from the causes and pathophysiology to diagnosis and treatment of pneumonia in children and adults (both in the outpatient setting and under hospitalization). The book also addresses antimicrobial resistance issues, common complications of pneumonia and the role of influenza and pneumococcal vaccines in preventing pneumonia.
