A recent communication1 from Maragliano's clinic at Genoa calls attention to the constancy of a great increase in the number of red corpuscles in case of a small, rather torpid tuberculous focus somewhere in the body.

This assumption was sustained by the constantly positive findings when guinea-pigs were injected with small, repeated doses of tuberculin, the result invariably being a pronounced hyperglobulia. These findings further suggested in turn the possible application of the measure in treatment of all kinds of anemia and chlorosis, not necessarily of a tuberculous character. Tuberculin in the minute, "refractory" doses employed is harmless, and is being given a thorough trial now in the clinic; the results seem to be promising, although it is too early for
