Acute pneumonia (AP) is one of the oldest nosologies known to medicine, which for many centuries has rightfully been attributed to severe diseases with high mortality. For most of its history, the search for ways to help patients with AP has been conducted empirically, but this disease has never been included in the category of contagious and did not pose a danger to others.
