Abstract

—In The Journal, March 5, in the article on "Pneumococcus Type II Pneumonia" by Drs. Russell L. Cecil and Norman Plummer, page 781, paragraph headed "Bacteremia," it is stated, "In a total of 202 cases in which no serum was administered, 162, or 46.4 per cent, showed type II pneumococci in the blood, yielded by culture at some time or other during the course of the disease." This should read, "In a total of 133 cases in which no serum was administered, 68, or 51.1 per cent, showed type II pneumococci in the blood, yielded by culture at some time or other during the course of the illness."
