Note:

{Catarrhal pneumonia}, or {Broncho-pneumonia}, is inflammation of the lung tissue, associated with catarrh and with marked evidences of inflammation of bronchial membranes, often chronic; -- also called {lobular pneumonia}, from its affecting single lobules at a time.

{Croupous pneumonia}, or ordinary pneumonia, is an acute affection characterized by sudden onset with a chill, high fever, rapid course, and sudden decline; -- also called {lobar pneumonia}, from its affecting a whole lobe of the lung at once. See under {Croupous}.

{Fibroid pneumonia} is an inflammation of the interstitial connective tissue lying between the lobules of the lungs, and is very slow in its course, producing shrinking and atrophy of the lungs. [1913 Webster]
