In human history, there have been several times of influenza raging, which have caused tens of millions of deaths and brought serious social and economic burdens. Although with the development of science, the emergence of vaccines has significantly reduced the incidence and mortality of influenza, due to the high variability of viruses, there is still a lack of effective treatment. More and more studies have found that bacterial pneumonia secondary to influenza was an important cause of the progression to critical illness or even death. Hence, diagnosis and treatment timely of secondary bacterial pneumonia are valuable. Therefore, we discuss the pathogens of bacterial pneumonia secondary to influenza, associated morbidity, mortality, and risk factors. Hopefully, it can provide some valuable references for clinical practice. Since some clinical studies have not separated pneumonia from lower respiratory tract infections, we will discuss these two situations together.
