Abstract: A list is given of elliptic curves over Q having additive reduction at exactly one prime. It is also proved that for primes congruent to 5 modulo 12, no such curves having potentially good reduction exist. This enables one to find in a number of cases a complete list of all elliptic curves with bad reduction at only one prime.
