In brief: Work up

There are many conditions which can lead to recurrent pneumonia or infections of the lungs.
These include cf, aspiration, retention of an aspirated object/food, abnormal structure in an area of the lung and immune defects. A workup may include evaluations for each of the above depending on your history and physical exam.
