Most painstaking inquiry into the clinical history of patients suffering from clinical tuberculosis fails, in nearly all instances, to reveal with any degree of certainty the time when the infection occurred. Especially is this true in adults, for tuberculosis is not the disease that we have...
Since v. Pirquet's1 first publication, a vast amount of material has been collected concerning the anaphylactic (allergic) cutaneous test for tuberculosis. Most authors are inclined to the opinion that its value is limited; great during infancy, but during later childhood, as well as adult life,...
