Community acquired pneumonia is one of the most common infectious diseases and is an important cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Community-acquired pneumonia is pneumonia acquired infectiously from normal social contact as disparate to being acquired during hospitalization. In community-acquired pneumonia, individuals who have not recently been hospitalized develop an infection of the lungs. CAP is a common illness and can affect people of all ages. CAP often reasons problems such as difficulty breathing, fever, chest pains, and a cough. CAP happens because the areas of the lung that absorb oxygen from the atmosphere become filled with fluid and cannot work excellently. Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in adults. CAP is defined as an infection of the lung parenchyma that is not acquired in a hospital, long-term care facility, or other recent contact with the health care system.

Community acquired pneumonia is diagnosed by clinical features like cough, fever, chest pain and by lung imaging, usually an infiltrate seen on chest radiography. Initial evaluation should determine the need for hospitalization versus outpatient management using validated mortality or severity prediction scores. Selected diagnostic laboratory testing, such as sputum and blood cultures, is indicated for in patients with severe illness but is rarely useful for outpatients. Initial outpatient therapy should include a macrolide or doxycycline. For outpatients with comorbidities or who have used antibiotics within the previous three months, a respiratory fluoroquinolone or an oral beta-lactam antibiotic plus a macrolide should be used. Inpatients not admitted to an intensive care unit should receive a respiratory fluoroquinolone, or a beta-lactam antibiotic plus a macrolide. Patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia or who are admitted to the intensive care unit should be treated with a beta-lactam antibiotic, plus azithromycin or a respiratory fluoroquinolone.On Community-acquired pneumonia a huge no of conferences, symposiums and workshops are organizing in the present days.
