The author discusses the treatment of tuberculosis in comparison with the development of medicine as a whole and divides tuberculosis therapy into five stages: (1) therapeutic methods on the basis of organic pathologic studies of the morbid course; (2) therapeutic methods on the basis of a single cause; (3) therapeutic methods on the basis of a pathologic-physiologic method of consideration; (4) the influence on tuberculosis therapy of functional-pathologic methods of consideration; (5) social and psychologic therapy of the tuberculous. This work has a bibliography but there are no illustrations. The presentation is a very general one and does not contain any particularly new material.
