Abstract To the Editor.—The statement appearing in our report "Meningococcal Pneumonia" (Archives119:111 [Jan] 1967) that "only two cases of meningococcal pneumonia without meningitis are known to have occurred in the last 20 years" is correct. In our summary we inadvertently used the expression "reported" rather than "occurred" which would have been proper. We were aware of Brick's report of two cases in 1948 (New Eng J Med 238:289) and having read the article knew they actually had occurred in 1942. These two cases already had been cited in the review of the literature by Meltzer and Kneeland (Ann Intern Med 46:183, 1957), our reference 2. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Internal Medicine American Medical Association
