What causes pneumonia?

my daughter was thought to have pneomonia back in sept. after several courses of antibiotics and ct scans they found a spot on both lungs that was growing and the pet scan showed a spot on the brain. lung biopsy was inconclusive. Dr.s beginning thought before biopsy was bacterial infection. Is it likely something like this would go to the brain

Respected user, hi it is unlikely to disseminate lung pathology to brain in your case.
It may be existing condition in brain detected afterwards or occurrence with/ after the lung pathology.
Hope this clears your query.
