The study of pneumonia and its treatment have been going on for decades, but complex therapy is still not effective enough, which makes it relevant in our time. The purpose of the work is to reveal the morphogenesis of pneumonia in conditions of application of antioxidants. In this work a comparative description of the results of lung necropolis and analyzes of patients' protocols in the treatment of antibiotics with antioxidants and without their using was made, morphological features were compared with different types of pneumonia. Data were obtained from the Vinnytsia Oblast Department of Pathology and Anatomy (OSPAB). 16 patients were divided into 4 groups of 4 people in each (A - died of lobar pneumonia, B - died of gangrenous pneumonia, B - died of segmental pneumonia, G - died of focal pneumonia). Patients are divided into 2 subgroups, depending on the method of treatment (I subgroup - therapy with antibiotics and antioxidants, II subgroup - antibiotics without the use of antioxidants). This allowed us to detect the direct role of antioxidants in the treatment of various types of pneumonia. When we compared morphological differences, depending on the type of treatment, a number of criteria were taken into account, namely: the degree of filling of the alveoli with air, the number of erythrocytes, leukocytes and neutrophils in the field of view. As a result, we have found indisputable evidence that antioxidants are an important element in the treatment of pneumonia. Based on the research, it was found that antioxidant therapy positively affects the course of pneumonia. The histological picture of cranial, gangrenous and segmental pneumonia is characterized by a decrease in segmental neutrophils in the alveoli, and with focal pneumonia in bronchioles. With clover and gangrenous pneumonia, an increase in air in the alveoli and moderate hypertrophy in the vasculature was observed. Morphological changes in pulmonary tissue with the use of antioxidants were to reduce the number of neutrophils and erythrocytes in the exsudate, the presence of small amounts of air in the alveoli, whereas in the other therapy, the alveoli were irritable. Flexibility of interalveolar membranes in the application of antioxidant therapy was more moderate than without its application.
