Malnutrition and tuberculosis are both problems of considerable magnitude in most of the so-called under-developed regions of the world. It is important to consider how these two problems,! which are both wide-spread in under-developed regions, tend to interact on each other. Whether we look at the problem of tuberculo- sis from the larger point of view of the prevention and control of the disease, or whether we look at it from the narrower clinical point of view of therapeutic management of individual cases, the question of the role of malnutrition in tuberculosis assumes great importance.
