Function of the adrenal cortex was assessed by laboratory tests before and after various forms of antitubercular treatment in thirty cases of pulmonary tuberculosis. After anti-tubercular therapy a partial correction of the hypocorticalism present on admission was observed. The conclusion has been drawn that adrenocortical activity of a tuberculous patient is closely related to the activity of the disease process. The relation of the adrenal cortex to the resistance in tuberculosis is discussed.
