dc.description.abstractThe literature or the subject of Bronchopneumonia is very silent regarding the occurrence of primary forms, particularly in adults.en
dc.description.abstractIn this paper I will endeavor to show that the disease known as "Catarrhal pneumonia", "Lobular pneumonia", "Capillary bronchitis" and "Bronchopneumonia" is by no means uncommon as a primary disease in adults that it occurs chiefly in weakly persons, that it has different varieties, both pathologically and clinically, that these varieties depend chiefly upon the virulence and distribution of the infective agent, and that the infective agent in primary bronchopneumonia is the same as in primary fibrinous pneumonia, namely the rneumococcus, with occasionally a mixed infection with the strepto coccus.en
dc.description.abstractI would urge that primary Brorchopneunonia should be classed along with fibrinous pneumonia, and be kept distinct from the secondary forms of bronchopneumonia, as it undoubtedly differs from it in its etiology. Primary Pneumonia would thus be capable of being described as an infective disease, due to the pneumococcus, affecting persons of all ages, and presenting grave constitutional symptoms, with signs pointing to the local seat of infection, and showing both lobar and lobular implication of the lung.en
