Where is Pneumonia Found?

Pneumonia normally sets up in the lungs. However, the bacteria that causes it is usually located in the nose or mouth. To my knowledge, there are three types of pneumonia. Bronchopneumonia, unlike the other two, starts in the bronchioles and bronchi before moving to the lungs.
