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. Human pulmonary parenchymal and bronchial lesions are discussed, and the problem of bronchiectasis is evaluated. This work is copiously illustrated by 136 color photographs. These illustrations would be interpreted with great difficulty
