Abstract

Probably no disease has been more widely studied than has tuberculosis. From the earliest time in history it would appear to hare been a feature in communal life and its importance may be judged by the number of inquiries and commissions which have had for their object a study of its incidence and natural history. Even at the present time every measure, evolved by individuals and governing bodies to improve the health and general hygiene of the community has in its background the spectre of tuberculosis. The present enquiry deals with 100 consecutive cases who presented lesions which were available for examination, the strain of infecting organism isolated being typed and correlated with the clinical manifestations of the disease. It is not claimed that the investigation is in any way complete. It is hoped, however, that others will undertake further enquiries along similar lines with a view to the understanding of the changes which are taking place in the natural history of the disease at the present tine.
