Bacterial pneumonia. Computer illustration of rod-shaped bacteria (bacilli) inside the alveoli of the lungs, causing a lower respiratory tract infection. This is more generally known as pneumonia, though that term can also be reserved for specific types of infection. Severe lung infections are diagnosed by X-ray and treated by antibiotics. The alveoli are the site of gaseous exchange between the air in the lungs and the blood.
