Kerosene was injected directly into the stomachs of pups which had previously had transections of their esophagi. The pups were examined radiographically and histologically (post mortem) for evidence of pneumonitis. None of the pups had any radiologic evidence of pneumonitis. Histologic examination after death revealed a suggestion of edema in 5 of the 7 dogs given kerosene. One had a focal hemorrhage; one, the pup which received the largest dose of kerosene, was normal histologically.
