Abstract

This report deals with the review of 9,111 hospitalized patients of pulmonary tuberculosis, of which 25 or 0.27% developed S.J. Syndrome. These 25 cases were detailed in reference to clini-cal picture of the syndrome and the role of drugs particularly of thiacetazone was critically analys-ed. Concerned western and Indian literature was reviewed. Thiacetazone was possible causative agent of the syndrome in most of the cases but definitely not in all cases of the present series.
