Pneumocystis Pneumonia Symptoms

Although the incubation period of Pneumocystis pneumonia is not definitely known, it is believed to be between four and eight weeks.

The major symptoms of the disease are fever, a non productive cough and shortness of breath. Lesser known symptoms include production of sputum, blood in sputum, chest pain and difficulty breathing.

Most patients experience symptoms for a week or two before they consult the physician. The disease occasionally spreads outside of the lungs and infects other organs like the spleen, lymph nodes, bone marrow or liver.
