Pneumonia can be caused by a wide variety of bacteria, viruses and fungi in the air we breathe. Identifying the cause of it can be an important step in getting the proper treatment.
The most common type of bacterial pneumonia is called pneumococcal. Pneumococcal pneumonia is caused by the Streptococcuspneumoniae germ that normally lives in the upper respiratory tract.
Bacterial pneumonia can occur on its own or develop after you’ve had a viral cold or the flu.
Some types of bacteria cause what is known as “atypical” pneumonia, including:
- Mycoplasma pneumoniae, a tiny wide-spread bacterium that usually infects people younger than 40 years old, especially those living and working in crowded conditions.
- Chlamydophila pneumoniae, which commonly causes upper respiratory infections year-round, but can also result in a mild form of pneumonia.
- Legionella pneumophila, which causes a dangerous form of pneumonia called Legionnaire’s disease. Unlike other bacterial pneumonias, Legionella is not passed from person to person. Outbreaks of the disease have been linked to exposure to contaminated water from cooling towers, whirlpool spas, and outdoor fountains.
Viruses that infect the upper respiratory tract may also cause pneumonia. The influenza virus is the most common cause of viral sickness in adults.
The fungal version of this illness is most common in people with chronic health problems or weakened immune systems, and in people who are exposed to large doses of certain fungi from contaminated soil or bird droppings.
