  9. An inflammatory response of the bronchioles and alveolar spaces to an infective agent (bacterial, fungal, or viral). Exudates lead to lung consolidation, resulting in dyspnea, tachypnea, and crackles. Diminished breath sounds and dullness to percussion occur over the area of consolidation.
  10. Lung infection often caused by bacteria (germs) inside the lungs. Characteristics of pneumonia are severe chills, a high fever, headache, cough with phlegm and chest pain.

  16. An acute infection of lung parenchyma including alveolar spaces and interstitial tissue.
  17. A severe inflammation of the lungs in which the alveoli (tiny air sacs) are filled with fluid. This may cause a decrease in the amount of oxygen that blood can absorb from air breathed into the lung. ...
  18. Inflammation of the lungs leading to fluid leakage and loss of function of lung tissue. Although it's often associated with pneumococcus bacteria, pneumonia can be caused by a variety of microbial or chemical irritants.
  19. a serious illness in which one or both lungs become red and swollen and filled with liquid.
  20. a disease of the lungs that is characterized especially by inflammation and consolidation of lung tissue followed by resolution, is accompanied by fever, chills, cough, and difficulty in breathing, and is caused chiefly by infection
