Observations on the clinical, radiological and pathological features of caseous nodules of the lung are presented, as seen in twenty-five cases treated by resection. Historical facts on the condition are listed and the literature is reviewed. The difficulties in distinguishing the types of caseous nodules from each other and from other conditions casting round pulmonary shadows, are pointed out. It is suggested that as the two main types of caseous nodules bear great resemblance to each other in structure and potential behaviour, there is no real necessity that they should be differentiated, for they require a common plan of treatment . Careful observation is the foremost necessity and treatment is indicated only when signs of activity appear. The possible forms of treatment are discussed and the eventual need for resection in the unstable cases is mentioned.
