Thank you for your question. I am not a medical professional and am not familiar with the impact pneumonia may have on the brain. I have found a few articles on HealthCentral talking about pneumonia and may be of some help to you:


 Learn about Pneumonia 

Also, this article from St. Jude's Research Hospital discusses the ways the bacteria from pneumonia can make their way to the brain:

Pneumonia Bacteria Hijack Their Way to the Brain

I hope this information helps.
