*Indications. Every student in school should have the benefit of an annual test by means of the Tuberculin Patch Test (Vollmer) Lederle. The Patch Test should be included in the periodic checkup of adults. Testing by means of the Tuberculin Patch Test (Vollmer) Lederle is one of the best ways to help find unrecognized cases of tuberculosis that exist in every community.
*Essentials in Application...
*Results Accomplished by the Patch Test. The majority of students show no reaction at all. Even if two red spots appear after the tape is removed, it does not mean that active tuberculosis is present. It simply indicates that further examination by means of X-ray and physical examination should be done. Unsuspected cases are thus detected and the early treatment of the disease, so important to tuberculosis, is made possible. The more promptly a case of tuberculosis is treated, the more promptly it will be halted.
