IN the effort to discover the- earliest
manifestations of tuberculosis In
sohool children, several communi
ties have set out to examine every
school child for the Indications
which are revealed by the tubercu
lin test and the X-ray In advance of
outward symptoms. The tubercu
lin test, a harmless procedure, se
lects those who are Infected and
should be examined with the X-ray.
In turn, the latter indicates whether
there Is danger from disease or not
The Massachusetts Department of
Public Health was one of the first to
begin such a campaign. Not only did
this search disclose children In
danger, but In many Instances It
led directly to the discovery of an
active case In adult members of
the same family, from whom the
children had been getting the In
fection that was preparing them for
a similar destiny.
One such example was recently
described by Dr. Henry D. Chad
wick, an outstanding authority on
tuberculosis, who bad charge of this
work in Massachusetts and now Is
developing a aimllar project In the
schools of Detroit, Michigan. A ten-
year-old girl was discovered with
the childhood typo of tuberculosis
In a marked degree.
"Tht obvious thing to do," said
Dr. Chadwlck In reciting this In
stance, "was to find the source of
the disease and protect her from fur
ther Infection. No treatment would
avail If she continued to receive
further doses of tubercle bacilli. It
was doubtful If she could withstand
the amount that was already produc
"The field nurse In the district In
which the child lived Investigated
the conditions at home and was suc
cessful in getting the parents and
the two sisters to come to the clinic
for an examination. One showed
the childhood type of tuberculosis,
the other had the adult type, Involv
ing the upper third of the right lung.
In the latter case there were also
Indications showing that the child
hood type had preceded the adult
type for fit least a year.
"The source which had spread the
Infection was found In the mother,
who had the fibroid type of tubercu
losis, which had not been previously
"Case-flndlng methods will lead to
a diagnosis of tuberculosis In Ha
early and more curable stages. We
cannot sit In our offices and expect
early and favorable canes to come in
for treatment. We must search them
out before the symptoms appear
that would lead a person to consult
a physician. That many seem Im
practicable or Impossible. It Is not.
We must keep in mind that tubercu
losis breeds tuberculosis that one
case comes from another and look
for new cases In the proximity of
