There are actually several different types of pneumonia, each with a different cause.

  • Viral pneumonia - caused by a viral infection
  • Bacterial pneumonia - caused by a viral infection. Usually more dangerous than viral pneumonia
  • Fungal pneumonia - rare form of pneumonia with a high mortality rate. Caused by a fungal infection
  • Parasitic pneumonia - caused by infection with parasitic organisms, such as roundworms
  • Chemical pneumonia - Not a "true" pneumonia, it is caused by aspirating an irritating chemical
