A study of the relevant literature on Chronic Cor Pulmonale (CCP) as a of Pulmonary Tuberculosis reveals that this complication, infrequent in the pre-chemotherapy era, is now encountered frequently in treated patients. The literature on pathogenesis of Chronic Cor Pulmonale has been critically reviewed and it has been concluded that repeated secondary infections in residual bronchial distortions, cavities and other fibrotic healed lesions play a decisive role in the development of this condition. A short note on the clinical application of the pathology of healing has also been included.
