The present paper deals with observations made in the villages surrounding Madanapalle within a radius of about ten miles during the years 1950 to 1955. During this time the population of 194 villages has been submitted to periodical examinations by tuberculin tests and mass radiography. The majority of cases of active and bacillary pulmonary tuberculosis have been admitted to a special isolation hospital of 75 beds and kept under treatment there until the bacilli disappeared.
