Infections are caused by an invasion of unwanted organisms that attack ones body. With that being said, pneumonia is an acute infection of the lung parenchyma (Anatomical Chart Company, 2010, p. 100).

Chloramphenicol is used as alternate therapy for treating more serious infection such as Typhoid Fever and some types of Meningitis. Chloramphenicol is also extremely useful for treating infections of the eyes.
