In another paper 1 Dr. Weiner and I presented an analysis of the cases of one thousand children with acute nontuberculous pneumonia admitted to the pediatric service of the Mount Sinai Hospital. We then attempted to follow those patients who when discharged showed positive findings either on roentgen or on physical examination. Hence patients who on admission already had evidence of bronchial or pulmonary destruction were not included. Also patients in whom there developed suppurative pleural involvement (empyema) were not included. In this way we hoped to find the source and trace the evolution of subacute or chronic pulmonary disease.
In this communication I am reporting the cases of ten patients who continued to have symptoms of pulmonary involvement from' two to ten years after their original admission for an acute pulmonary involvement. These patients were seen frequently. An interval history was obtained; a physical examination was made, and roentgenograms
