The successful result of scientific research and the effective solution of practical problems completely depend on the correct definition of their goals. This is an axiom of medical science and practice, without which it is impossible to count on the success of any endeavors. The reliability and verifiability of this rule only increases the feeling of deep disappointment and annoyance when it comes to widespread and persistent attempts to solve the problem of acute pneumonia (AP) in the same way that led it to a state of modern stagnation. The professional stereotype of ideas about the origin and development of AP, which has developed over the past few decades, continues to persistently consider only selective causes of this disease as the basis for a strategic solution to the problem.
