The satisfactory results noted in my previous report1 of pneumonia cases treated by quinin and iron have continued. My experience with this method is limited to 15 cases. The only fatal case was that of a pronounced alcoholic who had been suffering for months with an active tuberculous process in both lungs. He had been unable to work for two months prior to the attack of pneumonia. In this case the treatment exerted a beneficial influence on the circulation. The patient was nearly pulseless on the second day of the disease before instituting treatment. After administering the quinin and iron a good pulse was maintained for five days. In response to requests which are being made for more information concerning the quinin and iron treatment of pneumonia, I submit the following report of a recent case:
—J. McC., aged 30, maltster.
—The patient had never been ill
