Serum ceruloplasmin activity has been measured by colorimetric method of Ravin (1961) in 80 patients of pulmonary tuberculosis and in 30 healthy individuals. Serum ceruloplasmin in sputum positive patients was more than double of that in controls. Significant increase also occurred in patients with tubercular toxemia even though sputum negative. The ceruloplasmin levels per se did not bear any relationship to the radiological extent of disease and tend to decline after chemotherapy.
