In this volume, attention is called to the fact that atelectasis is an old subject but that our knowledge of it as a complication of tuberculosis is relatively recent. Ten cases are described in considerable detail and illustrations of roentgenograms of the chest are presented. Tomography was employed to study the extent of cavities in the atelectatic lung. An extensive bibliography is included.
