Summary
This work, authored by a noted and experienced expert in the field, examines the pathogenesis of human pulmonary tuberculosis in all of its stages, with a primary focus on the rabbit model. Tuberculosis in the rabbit most closely resembles that found in humans, including caseous necrosis, liquefaction, and cavity formation with bronchial spread of the disease
