Hello. Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia is caused by a yeast-like fungus. It usually appears within people with compromised immune system. Sulfa-containing antibiotics are a usual treatment for this. The most used one is Bactrim. If one is allergic to this antibiotic, then other kinds are given. Those are: pentamidine, dapsone, primaquine, clindamycin, etc. They can be used single or as a combination. I hope this helps. Bye!
