Abstract

These two volumes constitute the long-awaited report on the Harriet Lane Study of tuberculosis in children. Over 1000 children were entered in this long term study between 1928 and 1944; the patients were followed until the study terminated in 1950. The first volume is essentially an atlas of roentgenograms demonstrating very well many forms of tuberculosis seen in children, with the addition of films illustrating differential diagnosis of tuberculosis and other pulmonary conditions. The natural course of tuberculosis is shown by serial roentgenograms sometimes supplemented by bronchoscopic findings or illustrations from material obtained postmortem. The captions contain relatively little clinical information. There is a useful section on anatomy of the lung in relation to interpretation of chest x-rays and a chapter on bronchoscopy and bronchography.

The second volume consists of an analysis of the records of the Harriet Lane Study, mainly concerned with the prognosis of primary tuberculous infection in children and with the risk to the survivors of later developing “reinfection”-type pulmonary tuberculosis.
