HELIOTHERAPY IN THE TREATMENT OF GENITO-URINARY TUBERCULOSIS

Abstract

Tuberculosis of the genito-urinary tract, while not a common disease, occurs frequently enough as a complication of generalized tuberculosis to warrant the serious consideration of the profession. To the physician who is called on to treat a case, realizing, as he does, that it is a condition in which treatment has been far from uniformly successful and for the most part merely temporary and palliative, I hope I have something of value to offer. Before outlining our treatment, at the Fitzsimons General Hospital, for genito-urinary tuberculosis, a brief review of the literature will be given and also our reasons for employing strictly medical procedures, the principle one of which is heliotherapy. Compared with other diseases, genito-urinary tuberculosis is conceded very little space or attention. In medical works this is explainable by the reason that the condition is not considered amenable to medical treatment, and only enough mention is made to
