This monograph, representing the recapitulation of years of study in the field of pulmonary tuberculosis, deals with the pathologic manifestations of this disease process. A report of extensive research with laboratory animals is presented, in which the time sequence of tuberculous lesions is determined, and correlation with human disease is established. A summarization of findings from hundreds of human autopsies is submitted, showing reaction to the tubercle bacillus.
