Abstract

A study of tuberculin sensitivity carried out amongst Army recruits at Delhi Cantt is reported. In the group previously vaccinated 53.8 percent and in those not previously vaccinated 41.1 percent were found positive. This finding is discussed. A conversion rate of 89.4 percent in those given BCG vaccination was obtained on re-test after 8-10 weeks. The study does not justify the value of the size of tuberculin reaction in adults in selecting casss for further detailed investigations.
