The New York Medical Journal : July 1, 1899 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The New York Medical Journal: July 1, 1899 The last is the important item. In twenty - two cases we found tuberculous meningitis. In some few' cases this was limited to the presence of miliary tubercles; in most, the miliary tubercles were accompanied by more or less plastic exudation, especially at the base of the brain. We may safely say that in all these cases the meningitis was the direct cause of death. In addition to the complications thus far mentioned, we need only say that in two cases, where the chief lesion was confined to the bones and was accompanied by prolonged suppuration, we found extensive waxy de generation of the viscera. In all but two cases meningitis was either apart of a general miliary tuberculosis or was accompanied by advanced changes in lungs - hopeless.
