This book deals chiefly with the hematologic findings in pulmonary tuberculosis of the reinfection type in different stages of development. It is based on a comprehensive analytic survey of pertinent literature as well as on a total of 6,819 complete blood examinations, which included red and white cell counts and corrected sedimentation rates, performed under standardized conditions on 1,000 consecutive patients. The correlation between variations in the hematologic picture and various manifestations of the disease in different stages of development is ably discussed in detail.
