Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to pneumonia.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query. However, I would need you to upload the entire report for me to be able to comment. It could either be a pathchy consolidation due to pneumonia or could be due to a normal cough and cold. Going by the description it is likely to be the former. If that is the case, treatment with antibiotis is likely to be necessary. This can be confirmed after a thorough chest examination (auscultation with a stethoscope).

Let me know if I could help further.
