Seventy-five subjects; 25 with ‘recovered’ sarcoidosis; 25 with treated, inactive tuberculosis and 25 controls were examined for evidence of depression of delayed-type hypersensitivity by both intradermal tuberculin and Candida albecans antigens and also by dinitrochlorobenzene sensitisation. Patients with recovered sarcoidosis showed evidence of delayed-type hypersensitivity; the tuberculin test was negative in 72 percent, the Candida test was negative in 60 per cent and DNCB sensitisation could not be achieved in 56 per cent patients. Tuberculosis patients on recovery had normal delayed-type hypersensitivity like the control subjects.
