Abstract

It is remarkable that for a disease which is as common as pneumonia there should be a paucity of data relating to its recurrence in infancy and childhood. There does exist a small body of facts about pneumonia in adults, but with the exception of the recent study by Finland and Winkler1 the information which is available is fragmentary.

Cole4 stated: "Owing to the fact that second attacks of pneumonia are not uncommon (indeed it has even been stated that one attack predisposes to another) the occurrence of an acquired immunity following an attack of the disease has been doubted or
