Can you have Bronchitis and pneumonia at the same time?
I'm curious if a person can truly have both pneumonia and bronchitis at the same time? I've been diagnosed with it before, usually very close to each other, or right on top of each other, but a co-worker said it's impossible.

yes , Bronchitis turns into pneumonia and can become double pneumonia. where both lungs are congested
if have these symptoms best see doctor as soon as can

Well I know for a fact there is a classification of pneumonia that is called bronchial pneumonia; so what would you call that?

I think bronchitis can worsen into pneumonia, so sure.


kokochin01
Yes. Bronchitis is infection in the bronchial tubes leading to the lungs & pneumonia is infection in the lungs. Most ppl who have pnuemonia started out with bronchitis & it went down into the lungs. The bronchitis didn't magically resolve, it got worse & went into pneumonia.


D31025
Yes you can get both at the same time. Bronchitis is the inflammation of the airways while pneumonia is the inflammation of the lung itself. Usually you get the bronchitis first due to exposure to smoke and pollution or inhalation of bacteria from the air. Some of these particles and bacteria then make their way to the lung eventually causing pneumonia.
