Abstract
Various bacteriae, viruses, fungi, parasites may cause community acquired pneumonia and out of them, S. pneumoniae is the most common cause. As finding out causative pathogen in community acquired pneumonia which is common in primary care is often difficult, empiric antibiotic therapy is initiated. For ambulatory patients with community acquired pneumonia: 1) Ղ-lactam alone; 2) combination of Ղ-lactam and macrolides; or 3) respiratory quinolone are recommended. For inpatients without a risk of P. aeruginosa, Ղ-lactam plus macrolide or respiratory fluoroquinolone are recommended. The successful treatment of community-acquired pneumonia requires appropriate, empirical antimicrobial therapy.
