Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Pneumonia is infection of the lungs caused by bacteria called 'pneumococci'.
It can be cured by adminstration of appropriate course of antibiotics and antipyretic medications.
Also, general condition needs to be taken care by giving adequate physical rest and supplementing with healthy & nutritious food.
Gradually, the condition should recover well by taking above measures and should be back to normal.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
