Clinical records of 300 preventorium children were reviewed, and a study made of the roentgenograms. An underweight of 7 per cent or more was found in 70 per cent. In 30 per cent fever was a prominent symptom. An appreciable difference was not observed in the symptomatology or physical signs between the tonsillectomized and the nontonsillectomized groups. The greatest incidence of clinical disease and positive physical signs was noted in those with a history of definite exposure. Physical signs were often negative when the history and symptoms pointed to active disease. The x-ray was of the greatest aid in diagnosis
