Pneumonia : Acute inflammation of the walls of the smaller bronchial tubes, with irregular areas of consolidation due to spread of the inflammation into the peribronchiolar alveoli and the alveolar ducts of the lungs. Also called bronchial pneumonia. Lobar pneumonia - pneumonia affecting one or more lobes of the lung; generally lobar is larger and affects one or more loves of the lung.
