Prior to the epidemic of 1929-1930 psittacosis was almost unknown in this country except for a few sporadic cases. It has, however, been recognized as a disease, and the association with parrots noted, for at least 60 years. Its infrequency in recent times has tended to cause it to be almost forgotten. Many cases have undoubtedly gone unrecognized and were considered to be atypical typhoid, influenza, or influenzal pneumonia. It has seemed worthwhile, therefore, to present the following case and to call attention again to this disease.
