From a number of surveys, we have a fairly adequate knowledge of the prevalence of Tuberculosis. Changes occurring with time are less well-known. Repeated Surveys in the same population over a long period are needed for a knowledge of such changes. We are at present carrying out such a long term study in a random sample of 119 villages in Bangalore District. The present study describes the changes that occurred in the cases diagnosed in the first survey at the time of the Resurvey and gives us glimpses into the natural history of the disease.
