*Received for publication October 6, 1939. B. tuberculosis of bovine type has been isolated from a fatal case of probable intestinal tuberculosis in a child aged 6 years. The history of his having cosumed large quantities of raw milk from an early age, although not conclusive, suggests, suggests the likely source of infection.
