Human type of mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated from an untreated pulmonary tuber- culosis patient has been shown to be infective to healthy tuberculin negative monkeys. In earlier communication, organisms isolated from tubercular lesions in a monkey was shown to be of human type. When the human type of mycobacterium tuberculosis is infective to monkey the possibility of an organism from the simian source infecting man is visualized. Further study in the field is considered neces- sary to prove such a hypothesis. An economical method for such a survey is suggested.
