The combined clinical and bacteriological stud-y of the disease known as pneumonia has convinced me that the malady is one which might in a large number of cases be more fittingly described as Pneumococcal Septicaemia, with acute pulmonary inflammation as its most frequent and important manifestation. Sir John lSoore, in his book on Meteorology, and also in a recent monograph on Pneumonia, described the condition as '"Pneumonic fever." Others speak of pneumococcic infection, toxaemia, septicaemia, or pyaemia. Probably on the analogy of tuberculosis, actinomycosis, and Similar infective diseases, the term "Pneumonocosis" would most adequately express the disease in its various manifestations. All the results of recent investigation, whether carried out at the bedside, in the post-mortem room, or in the bacteriological laboratory, point in the same direction.
