In this report the author devotes a good deal of space to exogenous reinfection. He refers to the teachings of Romer and numerous other authors who have worked on this subject. Cases are cited to show that such reinfection occurs. A great deal of the remainder of the study is devoted to superinfections, referring to the work of Lange and calling attention to such subjects as the exogenous stimulation of the endogenous reinfection. One hundred and seventeen references are cited on the subject of exogenous reinfection and superinfection in tuberculosis.
