Abstract: The dark chronicle: In 1841, Dr Charles Galland, professor of anatomy at the Malta University carried out post-mortems on 615 unselected cases who had died from various diseases and he found clear indications of tubercular lung disease in 13% of them. This shows that the number of TE cases with lung involvement at that time was high.
