Abstract

Pneumonia contributed to nearly 3 million deaths worldwide in 2016 and 56,000 deaths in the United States alone in 2017, and as such, it is imperative for physicians to understand the causes, subtypes, associated risk factors and treatment options. This article will address each of these, as well as special consideration for the osteopathic approach to care.
