Since the beginning of the aseptic era in surgery, general amyloidosis appears to be common only in sanatoria for the care of tuberculous patients. Dixon reported 100 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis, 70 of whom had amyloidosis. Perla and Gross reported 100 cases of amyloidosis out of 112 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis, and Saleeby 41 out of 50 cases. In a series of 579 autopsies at Glen Lake Sanatorium, 109 cases of amyloidosis were discovered, an incidence of 19 per cent. The incidence is less than is usually quoted by the various authors from other sanatoria. Rosenblatt found amyloidosis in 24.4
