Excerpt
Public health authorities occasionally refer to an entity they call the problem of tuberculosis in a given country or area. The problem of pulnlonary tuberculosis is, in the final analysis, the total sum of all the suffering, discomfort and economic dislocation directly or indirectly brought about by the tubercle bacillus destroying human lung tissue. Until recently, the measurement of the tuberculosis problem was usually in the form of mortality and morbidity figures based on notification to public health authorities. Over the last few vears more precise estimates of the tuberculosis problem are being obtained through epidemiological sample surveys. In these surveys the measurements are usually in terms of the numbers and proportions of persons with large reactions to tuberculin skin tests, of persons with shadows on chest photofluorograms judged to represent lung lesions caused by tubercle bacilli, and of persons with tubercle bacilli that can be isolated by a variety of techniques. In justifiable enthusiasm over mastering the more precise measurements of the epidemiological surveys, tuberculosis research workers have sometimes lost sight of the true problem of tuberculosis, as defined above.
