In a series of cases, it has been noted that there frequently occurs in victims of pneumonia treated with sulphanilamide, a black-dotted, heavy furring of the tongue akin to black-tongue. At the same time, consolidation of the lung fails to resolve though the temperature be normal and toxic effects cleared.
