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:

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

I hope this information helps.
