In brief: SARS is a type

Pneumonia is any infection of the lungs.
Sars is a particularly severe pneumonia that can cause respiratory failure and require life support. It is caused by a particular virus. Because it is caused by a virus there is no standard antibiotic to treat it and the treatment is to simply support the patient until it resolves.
