100 years ago: 'Tuberculin plays an important part in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis in certain cases, and that its efficacy is greatly increased when it is diluted with a 1 per cent. solution of carbolic acid. However, tuberculin cannot take the place of sanatoria. Too much value is placed on tuberculin by tuberculin enthusiasts. It has an important place in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis, but must on no account be allowed to usurp sanatorium treatment. Its use is restricted to certain cases.'
