Case 1.  —My first case was one with large cavities in left lung, hepatization of the lower portion of right lung; had a great many hemorrhages, sputum contained large quantities of bacilli; weight 120 pounds. Treatment commenced May 10, 1895. In three months tubercle bacilli disappeared from sputum entirely, and it has remained free from them ever since. The cavities in left lung healed up, with great contraction of the chest on that side, three or four inches, which has remained so. The patient ceased to expectorate heavy sputa.
