Similarity solutions of the viscous transonic equation describing source and source vortex flows have been found. These solutions contain shock-like transitions from the supersonic to the subsonic branch of the corresponding inviscid solutions, while the singularity near the sonic point of the inviscid solutions is shifted to a smaller radius. It is shown that this similarity solution is identical to the transonic viscous compressible source and sink flow solutions of Wu (1955) and Sakurai (1958).
