    A case of Pseudomonas pneumonia developing in a patient on treatment for status asthmaticus is described. The use of broad spectrum antibiotics, high dose steroids and humidifiers or nebulizers may be of aetiological importance. Pseudomonas pneumonia is increasing in prevalence although it has not previously been described in association with status asthmaticus. It carries a high mortality and its prevention is, therefore, clearly important.
