Pneumonia is a severe lung infection that can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. When you have pneumonia, you may experience fever, chills, and difficulty breathing. While anyone can get pneumonia, it can be life-threatening in people under age 2 or over age 65, people with weakened immune systems, or people with weakened lungs.
