Paru paru berair

When I first heard the term " paru paru berair " , I was like " what the heck that supposed to mean?
Apparently , in layman term , it referred to pneumonia or dalam bahasa melayu bermakdud jangkitan kuman pada paru paru.
It's a very common illness. Everyone has got it at least once in their life. Some got mild infection. Some got severe infection which until the extend of requiring icu admission. Mintak jauh la kan.

Worse , it's more common in children...
What are the symptom? The classical would be fever, cough and fast breathing. That would be the definition for bronchopneumonia in children.

The treatment? No other than antibiotic.

So Mcm mane term paru2 berair bole timbul?
In severe pnuemonia, it could lead to pleural effusion which mean accumulation of fluid inside he lungs , hence come the term paru paru berair.....
