AB - This paper discusses the connection between projective relatedness and conformal flatness for 4-dimensional manifolds admitting a metric of signature (+,+,+,+) or (+,+,+,−). It is shown that if one of the manifolds is conformally flat and not of the most general holonomy type for that signature then, in general, the connections of the manifolds involved are the same and the second manifold is also conformally flat. Counterexamples are provided which place limitations on the potential strengthening of the results.
