A brief note has been given of the
earlier work on genito-urinary tuberculosis
and its diagnosis by specialised methods.
The etiology and pathology of the
disease has been discussed at some length.
It is maintained that only by an accurate
knowledge of the genesis of tuberculosis can
we hope to be successful in our treatment.
The clinical manifestations described
are based on personal observations made over a period of twenty-six years. Recent methods
of diagnosis are mentioned.
A brief outline is given of treatment
particularly in regard to the giving of
tuberculin, and a plea is put forward for its
more extensive use in the disease.
The relationship of surgery to genito-urinary
tuberculosis is discussed.
