According to Smadel,16 "Primary atypical pneumonia is a clinical-pathological entity which has a diverse etiology. One of the first approaches to the problem of this disease should be the establishment of an etiological diagnosis wherever possible. In this way certain cases can be removed from the general group and studied in a more intelligent manner." Recent investigation of this disease includes the virus and bacteriological study of humans and animals, and the development of a number of serological tests for the detection of a widely different group of antibodies which develop chiefly during the convalescent phase of the disease.
