REPORT OF CASE 

History.—  A white woman aged 23 was admitted to the White Haven Sanatorium in March 1940. She complained of pain in the right side of the chest, dyspnea, cough, expectoration and hemoptysis.

Physical Examination.—  Nutrition and color were poor. The cervical lymph nodes were palpable on both sides.

The temperature was 99 to 102 F.,
