    Probably not. Not unless you have some kind of sever allergy to them and you already had bronchitis or something and the irritation  somehow caused it to progress into pneumonia. It is extremely unlikely that roaches could possibly cause pneumonia and its most likely something else if it happens often

    NO!!!!

    Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that involves the small air sacs (alveoli) and the tissue around them.

    Often pneumonia is the final illness in people who have other serious, chronic diseases.

    i doubt it, but i would ask your doctor about it, you need to have pest control come and get rid of them,personally id rather have the roaches than the bedbugs ive had to deal with
