Refinements in roentgenological technic making possible the rapid, inexpensive chest survey of large groups have stimulated considerable interest in the old problem of tuberculosis among the insane. The authors have made a primary survey in Southwestern State Hospital and have derived certain impressions from their experience in the subsequent management of the tuberculous patients so segregated. The initial survey has been followed by similar studies of all patients admitted since the original survey. It is felt that those now engaged in this work, or who plan work of a similar character, may be interested in our findings and observations.
