The purpose of the present communication is to present seven cases of organic heart disease in which there is isolated involvement of the pulmonary artery or valve, and to indicate the importance of certain physical signs and laboratory procedures in their diagnosis. Each individual was studied while a patient in Charity Hospital at New Orleans. All but one were encountered within a few months of each other. Three patients are presented as examples of congenital isolated stenosis of the pulmonary valve, two as examples of acquired pulmonary valvulitis, and two as examples of pulmonary artery aneurysm secondary to infection.
