Viethen summarizes the results of six years' experience with tuberculous children studied at the University Clinic at Freiburg. The plan employed by Viethen and his associates differed from that used elsewhere in Germany in that children were given special pediatric supervision and were separated from adult patients. By means of preliminary dispensary examinations and periods of observation for from five to six days in admitting stations, they separated the noninfected children and the infected children who did not require treatment from those who needed care. Children who needed treatment were admitted to institutions, whereas the infected children who were exposed but who required no treatment were cared for elsewhere and were reexamined clinically and roentgenographically three or more times annually. The preliminary classification of the cases whereby those not needing treatment were excluded from institutions accomplished a saving in expense of about 25 per cent.
