Abstract

The diagnosis of tuberculosis of the tracheobronchial glands is of the greatest importance, because the entire future of the child depends on it. It may make necessary open air or even preventorium life and a careful attention to diet, because if one is not careful, the child may develop generalized tuberculosis or tuberculous meningitis. Therefore, a great responsibility rests on the physician to determine whether the child has or has not tuberculosis of the tracheobronchial glands. The importance of familial contagion of tuberculosis was emphasized, in 1902, by Grancher, who formed for that purpose the "Oeuvre de preservation de l'enfance contre la tuberculose." At that time, many physicians were not convinced of it, but now every pediatrician, in fact every physician, is convinced of the dangers of the germ-carrier parent to the children. Because of this, almost all pediatricians in the dispensaries constantly look for the disease in children, especially
