Bacteria are the most common causes of pneumonia. However, these infections can also be caused by other microbial organisms.

The symptoms of bacterial pneumonia develop abruptly and include chest pain, fever, shaking, chills, shortness of breath, and rapid breathing and heart beat. Certain children have a higher than normal risk for pneumonia and its recurrence. The infection can be a very serious problem, even though the majority of pneumonias respond well to treatment.
