Caption: Bacterial lobular pneumonia. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan showing a coronal section through the lungs of a 58-year-old man with pneumonia. Orange regions of inflammation caused by the pneumonia are visible in both lungs (blue). Bacterial pneumonia, which results in inflammation of the lung, is most commonly caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae. The pathogen is inhaled into the lung segments, or lobes, where it causes the alveoli (air sacs) to become blocked with pus. Treatment is with antibiotics.
