neutral  Anne Schulz: "typical"/"atypical" refer to the suspected pathogen and should be included in the translation: liquefying typical bacterial pneumonia.

  -> Thank you

agree  MMUlr: with Anne ... but do you say "typical"? we say "atypische Pneumonie", but typische? (maybe "... pneumonia by typical pathogens")
