Pneumonia in Children

Pneumonia in children is often caused by viral or bacterial infections, leading to inflammation of the lungs. Symptoms may include cough, fever, rapid breathing, and chest pain. Diagnosis typically involves physical examination, chest X-ray, and sometimes blood tests or other imaging studies. Treatment may include antibiotics for bacterial pneumonia, supportive care such as rest, fluids, and fever management, and in severe cases, hospitalization for oxygen therapy and close monitoring. Vaccination against common pathogens like Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae type b can help prevent pneumonia in children.
