The cell mediated immune responses in 60 treated and untreated BCG vaccinated and non-vaccinated tuberculous children was studied. Leucocyte migration inhibition test (LMIT) in the presence of P.P.D. and blast transformation in the presence of phytohemagglutinin (P.H.A.) was done in all cases. Amongst untreated cases the LMIT was positive in a significantly higher number of children as compared to non-vaccinated children. Blast transformation was also significantly higher in BCG vaccinated untreated tuberculous children.
