Document Type

Abstract

This study traces tuberculosis of the throat through five generations of a family very susceptible to this disease. The disease varies little throughout the family, in place of infection and in virulence. This investigation includes one hundred and eight individuals; twenty-two having had tuberculosis of the throat; three, tuberculosis of the lung; two, tuberculosis of the bone, and three, other throat ailments. The data suggest very strongly that there is a hereditary diathesis for tuberculosis in this family.
