The report presents the findings from a clinical-roentgenologic study of 814 patients with acute myocardial infarction. The myocardial infarction was complicated by pneumonia in 82 (10.7%) patients including 53 cases of hypostatic, and 6 cases of atelectatic forms of pneumonia. The remaining 23 patients presented an exacerbation of chronic pneumonia. In 61 patients (77.0%) pneumonia was associated with venous congestion and 50% of these patients showed interstitial or alveolar pulmonary edema. The diagnosis of pneumonia is shown to be possible on the basis of clinical and roentgenologic signs.
