The opportunity to make some clinical and pathological observations on psittacosis was offorded when a small group of three cases in one family was recognized by one of us in his practice (C.R.). One patient, a woman of 53 years, died and an autopsy was performed. The other two cases, a girl of 22 and a child of 9 both recovered. The fatal case presented the appearance of pneumonia but the recovered cases were typhoidal in character, the older girl being very ill for 28 days while the child showed a very mild infection of about two weeks' duration.
