In 1934 Viets and Watts1 published their third paper on acute aseptic (lymphocytic) meningitis, in which they summarized the literature up to the time of publication, reviewed the five cases that had been observed in 1929, and added details in regard to nine others. It was felt that the syndrome was so well recognized, both in the literature and as the result of their own experience, that the disease should be considered a clinical entity. In the last two years a number of other patients with the same syndrome have been observed and numerous reports have occurred in the literature. In addition to the elucidation of the clinical syndrome, the whole subject has been brought to a focus by the finding of a virus which is probably the etiologic factor in the disease. This virus has been reported by Armstrong and his associates,2 by Traub,3 by Rivers
