Definition Infection of the lower respiratory tract that involves the airways and parenchyma with consolidation of the alveolar spaces. Highest in infancy, remains relatively high in childhood, low in adult and increases again in old age.
Etiology Virus (common in younger children) RSV Influenza A and B Adenovirus Parainfluenza 1,2,3
Bacteria Age Bacterial pathogens Newborns Group B streptococcus, E. coli, Klebsiella, Enterobacteriaceae 1-3months Chlamydia trachomatis Preschool Strp. pneumoniae, HiB, Staph. Aureus school Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae
Microorganisms entry Inhalation of the microbes Aspiration of the organism Hematogenous spread from a distant focus Direct spread from an adjoining site of infection
Types Bronchopneumonia Inflammation of the lung that is centered in the bronchioles and leads to the production of an exudates that obstructs smaller airways and causes patchy consolidation of the adjacent lobules. Lobar pneumonia Pneumonia localized to one or more lobes of the lung in which the affected lobe or lobes are completely consolidated.
Signs Tachypnoe Nasal flaring Chest indrawing Dullness on percussion Decreased breath sound Crackles on auscultation
Investigations Full blood count Renal profile Chest X-ray Blood culture Pleural tap analysis Serology
Viral vs Bacterial Characteristics Viral Bacterial Fever Low grade, acute High grade, gradual onset Mucosal congestion and inflammation of upper airway Suggestive Not suggestive FBC WBC normal or mildly elevated, lymphocytes predominance WBC elevated, neutrophils elevated X-ray Usually characteristics of bronchopneumonia Usually lobar consolidation
Treatment Factors like the clinical or investigation findings, age of the child, local epidemiological agents, sensitivity to microbial agents and the severity of the pneumonia should be considered.
Macrolide antibiotic is used if Mycoplasma or Chlamydia are the causative agents. 1 st line Beta-lactam drugs Ampicillin , amoxycillin, benzylpenicillin 2 nd line Cephalosporins Cefotaxime, cefuroxime, ceftazidime 3 rd line Carbapenam Imipenam others aminoglycosides Gentamicin, amikacin
Supportive treatment Nebulized bronchodilators Fluids Must be given in appropriate amount Oxygen Concentration determined by pulse oximetry Anti-pyretic
Others… Had to go to 3 health care centers before getting proper treatments. Mother had to stay away from husband and daughter. Working father had to drive every night to HSB Got tired Economy Leaves daughter with sister in law.
