Abstract

Our knowledge of the pathogenesis and the anatomic varieties of tuberculosis in childhood has undergone considerable change during the past decade, and at present we know that the clinical types of pulmonary tuberculosis in the first few years of life are quite distinct from those of adults. Typical apical lesions commonly found in adults are not seen till late in childhood, while affections of the bronchial lymph nodes are the rule. There are, however, forms of tuberculosis whose localization in the lungs of children is just as typical as that in adults, the area of lung involved being determined by the presence of the diseased bronchial nodes. It is our purpose in this paper to report clinically and from the roentgenographic standpoint one particular variety of juvenile tuberculosis which is of considerable importance. Before describing the lesion in detail it may be well to review briefly the generally accepted conception
