Description

Excerpt from Proceedings of the Conference of Sanitary Officers of the State of New York: Held at Convention Hall, Rochester, November 10-12, 1909 The imperative importance of early diagnosis of tuberculosis is established. We are not here interested in the mere determina tion of the bacilli of tuberculosis in sputa or excreta, but in methods that shall unmask a beginning invasion of the organism by these bacilli: the precocious diagnosis of a tubercular infection. There are various methods which reveal such infection in its initial stages with great reliability. The use of tuberculin as a diagnostic agent dates from Koch's failure to establish its value as a general means of cure. It was found that an hypodermic injection of a minute dose of tuberculin provoked a marked and prompt rise of temper. Hire in a tubercularly reacting organism.
