A case of miliary tuberculosis associated with an aleukemic lymphatic blood picture has been reported. The histologic appearances of tissue removed at autopsy confirmed the leukemic picture and also showed diffuse tuberculous lesions of a necrotic type containing innumerable acid-fast bacilli.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We wish to thank Sir Lionel Whitby and Dr. J. S. Richardson for their interest in the case, and advice in the preparation of this paper.
