Epidemiological, clinical and laboratory data, according to seasons and republics in Yugoslavia are presented and discussed. The authors report serologically proved, clinically inapparent infections with influenza virus in a childrens' home in Serbia. Data are given suggesting that an outbreak caused by influenza-virus B may protect from a subsequent clinically manifest infection with influenza A-prime, if the 2d wave follows the first one within 15-20 days. A brief analysis of the first 2 influenza strains isolated in Yugoslavia is presented.
