Description

Excerpt from Transactions of the Second Annual Meeting of the American Climatological Association: Held in the City of New York, May 27, 1885 Whatever conclusions may finally be reached as to the exact nature and cause of phthisical processes, clinically we must always recognize two varieties of phthisis: First, acute phthisis, the morbid changes of which are a complex of inflammation and the rapid development of tubercular tissue in the lung substance. Second, chronic phthisis, the essential pathological changes of which are consolidation and induration of lung substance; tubercle may or may not be its primary lesion, but it is usually present in its advanced stages. During the past two years my own examinations of the lungs of those who have died with the clinical history of chronic phthisis have convinced me that, in advanced phthisical processes, tubercular tissue can always be found, but I am not pre pared to state that the development of tubercle is the primary lesion in all or in the majority of cases.
