This type of presentation is seen in Pneumonia
due to bacteria or viral some times but require prolonged antibiotic therapy for atleast 10 days to 2 weeks. If there is no improvement to this treatment other investigations like ESR
, Mantoux test
should be carried out to rule out tuberculosis
as it usually presents with middle lobe pneumonia and other cause of non resolving pneumonia is foreign body inhalation which is causing collapse and surrounding consolidation. So better you discuss with your doctor and pulmonologist for the proper investigation and the management.
