Thus far all experimental work has resulted only in an acute insufficiency of the adrenal function. Excision of the glands is followed by death in two or three days. It was accordingly necessary to devise some means of slowly but progressively injuring the function of the glands. For this purpose it was decided to try the injection of tuberculin over long periods. Tuberculin was selected because of the evidence presented by certain workers in this field that chronic tuberculosis causes a sclerosis and atrophy of the adrenal glands.
