A study of 93 cases of Pneumonias in adults was carried out over a period o f 3 years. The predominant organisms isolated were Enterobacter, E. coli, Streptococci and Staphylococci. Clinical and radiographic responses to the drugs administered (Epicillin, Ampi­cillin and Penicillin) were broadly comparable. Only 5 cases (Epicillin) failed to respond. There was little difference in the responses according to the organisms isolated or the sensitivity to the drug administered. The responses were similar in both Gram positive and Gram negative infections and the drug sensitivity status did not seem to matter.
