This is one of the first books in recent years dealing primarily with surgical treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. Since the advent of streptomycin, approximately seven years ago, and the other drugs effective in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis, the overall therapy has undergone many startling changes.
The very broad topic headings of both collapse therapy and extirpative surgical therapy are discussed in concise terms. Explanation is made of the rôle played by chemotherapeutic agents, when used as adjuncts with extirpative surgery, which actually makes it possible.
The author has arranged the information in the book into three major divisions. Part
