Dermal tuberculous lesions were produced in rabbits by the intradermal injection of BCG. At various times after infection, anesthetized animals were perfused with a gelatin-colloidal carbon medium via the abdominal aorta. The capillary density of the nonnecrotic granulation tissue in the lesions was determined quantitatively by counting the capillaries under an ocular grid of a microscope. The capillary density in normal skin near the lesions was 3.8 plus or minus 0.5 in millimetersof capillary… CONTINUE READING
