The silent pneumonia is another term for walking pneumonia.

The silent pneumonia and walking pneumonia is a milder form of the regular pneumonia where you have the pneumonia but then may not even know about it.

Silent Pneumonia is a bacterial infection that affects your upper and lower respiratory tract and silent pneumonia is called atypical pneumonia and walking pneumonia.

The silent pneumonia usually resolves on it's own without the need to go to the hospital or have bed rest.

But if the silent pneumonia gets worse or doesn't seem to go away then go to the doctor or urgent care or if the pneumonia gets even worse go to the emergency room.

More severe cases of pneumonia can be deadly so if in doubt go get checked out.
