The introduction of sulfapyridine and sulfathiazole in the treatment of pneumococcic pneumonia constitutes the greatest advance in the control of this disease. Within the past three years numerous clinical reports have unquestionably established their therapeutic effectiveness, and the fatality rate of pneumococcic pneumonia has been markedly reduced with their use.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the influence of several factors on the prognosis of this disease. This report is based on our experience
