Influence of pneumonia and cancer on reducing childhood mortality

Cancer patients who contract bacterial pneumonia suffer from severe morbidity. Despite the fact that patients with treatment-induced cytopenias are frequently at the highest risk, there are many factors that can cause life-threatening pneumonias in cancer patients, from abnormalities in swallowing function and lung architecture to complex immune defects brought on by cytotoxic therapies and graft-versus-host disease. The diagnosis of pneumonia in cancer patients is frequently difficult due to these structural and immunologic abnormalities, which also have an effect on the kind and length of therapy. The host factors that affect pneumonia susceptibility are discussed in this publication, along with a summary of diagnostic advice and a discussion of the most recent recommendations for treating bacterial pneumonia in cancer patients.
