In one of the seven cases, both the clinical and the gross pathologic diagnosis was tuberculosis, but the microscope disclosed another condition. For the clinical findings given, we are indebted to Dr. Esther Rosencrantz of the University of California Service at the San Francisco Tuberculosis Hospital; to Dr. H. I.
