1. A study of tubercular lesions in 71 cases of resected lung has been carried out and the pattern of these lesions has been described with a view to establish’ correlation with ‘type of chemotherapy’ and post-operative complications in these cases. 2. Localised type of lesion was noticed in 5 cases while multiple type of lesions were found in 66 cases. 3. It was found that besides chemotherapy the host resistance is an important factor in influencing the pattern of lesions in the lung. 4. Even the most satisfactory chemothera- peutic regime may not succeed in era dicating all tuberculous lesions, but helps in their encapsulation. 5. The post operative complications of B.P.F. which occurred in 11 cases could be explained on the basis of endobron-chial disease.
