Non-tuberculous pulmonary lesions are quite frequent and are met with by every clinician during the course of his clinical practice. Many of these lesions are diagnosed as tubercular while the underlying real pathology is not clear, and many of these find their way to tuberculosis clinics. The knowledge of these non- tubercular pulmonary lesions by tuberculosis workers is thus very necessary. It is evident from statistics that we have collected from the tuberculosis clinic, Amritsar, during the period January 1, 1952 to December 31, 1952 that a large proportion of the cases were of a non-tuberculous nature. There were 4,446 new patients who attended the clinic during the above period and out of these 2,749 were non- tuberculous.
