Hi,
How is your mother? Atypical pneumonia refers to pneumonia caused by certain bacteria such as  Legionella which is seen more often in middle-aged and older adults, smokers, and those with chronic illnesses or a weak immune system. Symptoms  differ from those of pneumonia due to other common bacteria but can be more severe. Treatment is with antibiotics which will also help resolve the symptoms present. It is best that you talk to your doctor about the diagnosis and management plan to help ease anxiety also. Take care and do keep us posted.
