This article overviews the clinical and pathological picture of influenza and bronchopneumonia, as well as the significance of secondary infections in the epidemic, at Camp Merritt in New Jersey from September to November, 1918. The authors want to clarify that, as opposed to the opinion of other authors, they view “this so-called ‘bronchopneumonia’ not so much a complication as a severe manifestation of the disease itself… It is, however, convenient to employ the word ‘influenza’ for the early stage and the word ‘bronchopneumonia’ for the later stage of the disease.” The article also compares and notes the similarity between influenza and measles.
