Abstract
Two clinical aspects of Pneumocystis carinii infection which may be diagnostically useful are pointed out: a cough, usually non-productive, and, immediately preceding infection, reduction in dosage of steroids and immunosuppressants. In the case of a patient of Byrd and Horn, 1976 [see Chest 70, 91-92] there had however been no changes in corticosteroid or chemotherapy immediately before development of symptoms.
