An eye sanatorium; survey of one years' work.

Abstract

Tuberculosis of the eye appears in many different forms, in all grades of severity, and at all ages. The pathological changes in the ocular structures may be due to the presence of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis or to the effects of hypersensitivity of some part of the eye to tuberculoprotein, as the result of a previous tuberculous infection in the body, often in the lymphatic glands, or lungs. In some cases the clinical manifestations are the result of a combination of both these factors.
