I wouldn't be too worried since they have already started antibiotics. Atelectasis is just compressed lung tissue from the infection, and the infiltrate is indicative of bacterial pneumonia. The location isn't really important; just as long as it doesn't spread to other areas. If it was in the apex of the lung, it could be concerning for other types of infection, but this seems pretty standard for bacterial pneumonia in a child. Just complete the antibiotic and follow-up in a few weeks with the pediatrician. If things get worse, call you doc because they may have to switch antibiotics, but cephalexin usually works more than 90% of the time.
If there is anything else I can answer, I will always keep dialog open after payment. And please consider a bonus and positive feedback. Thanks!
