Bronchopneumonia Definition

Bronchopneumonia is a common inflammation of the lung, also referred to as bronchial pneumonia, or lobular pneumonia. Inflammation starts in the small bronchial tubes - bronchioles, and irregularly spreads to the peribronchiolar alveoli and alveolar ducts. The result is that the inflammatory changes lead to the localized inflammatory consolidation in bronchioles and their surrounding alveoli of the lungs.

Bronchopneumonia Causes

Most of the time, broncho- pneumonia is caused by bacterial infection, especially the pyogenic bacteria to form the suppurative pneumonia. Adenovirus, influenza virus, Mycoplasma pneumoniae also plays a role.

Bronchopneumonia often occurs in human due to the lower body resistance and the impaired defense function of the respiratory tract. So, children, elderly persons and the sickly or weak persons are the main susceptible population.

Bronchopneumonia is the most common pneumonia in children.
