Certain aspects of pulmonary abscess are presented as a continuation of the study of this disease at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Two hundred and twenty-seven cases occurring between 1909 and 1924 have been analyzed by one of us.1, 2 The present series embraces 211 cases observed from 1924 to 1932. As of this number all but one has been followed to the termination in death or present condition from two to nine years after discharge, the discussion to follow is based on the 210 cases. For the unusual success in the follow-up we are indebted to Miss Eleanore A. Lewis
