In brief: No
Pneumonia denotes infection in the lung parenchyma (lung tissue).
Bronchits denotes infllamation in the bronchilal airway. Pneumonia is a more serious condition. Bronchitis is usally viral, may last 2 week, cough is common. However, our job is to rule out other causes of cough and determine the proper treatment.
