In brief: Cough and fever

Broncho-pneumonia is an infection of the lungs.
Also called pneumnonia. Most present with cough, fever, and fatigue. Some also have chest or stomach pain. Often your doctor can diagnose pneumonia by examning you. Sometimes a chest xray is needed. Pneumonia can be caused by many different types of germs; your doctor will pick a treatment specific to your situation.

In brief: Bronchopneumonia

Bronchopneumonia is another complication of a cold virus.
The weakened immunity lets bacteria get down your airways initially cuasing a bronchitis, cough with thick phlegm, but no fever. As this progresses deeper into your lungs actually reaching the little air sacs called alveoli, it is called bronchopneumonia. When this happens you are likely to have significant fever and to feel much sicker.
