Clinical Image

A 16-year-old woman was admitted to hospital because of 7-day history of high fever and dry cough. The maximum body temperature was high to 41 degree centigrade. She had been treated by Cefuroxime for 5 days in community hospital but had no use. On admission, the patient breathed with a little difficulty and riles could be heard on the right lower chest. The white-cell count was 5300 / mm3 with 76.9% neutrophils. Arterial partial pressure of oxygen was 67.6 mmHg on room air. Chest CT scan showed large consolidation in the right lower lobe and patchy consolidation in the middle lobe (Figure 1). And what’s your diagnosis?
