i know viral pneumonia are a type of Atypical pneumonia p.296goljan RR.
AND AS FAR AS I KNOW ATYPICAL IS EXPLAINED AS ,LOW FEVER+ DRY COUGH,+ACUTE ONCET+SIGNS OF CONSOLICATION)DULLNESS,..)...
but i just read this FA question talks about 76 y/o guy with drycough,HIGH fever,shotrness of breath and mild cyanosis in beginning of fall.
and the answer was influenza virus pneumonia,,,i am wondering do you describe this as atypical pneumonia? i mean high fever?
can we have high fever with other causes of atypical pneumonia ?...maybe other viruses? or it is just influenza?
another ATYPICAL pneumonia with high fever is legionella pneumonia...
anyone knows the right description of atypical vresus typical ? maybe i am missing something here,,,,

Atypical PNA = Cultural negative
that is the only definition. Everything else is wrong.
