Their family histories werenot contributory. The X-ray findings of the chest showed the old hilar lymphadenopathy with almost fibro consolidated patterns, and the pelvis showed the destructions of the pubis with sequestrums and hazy shadows around the pubis, but no evidence of any productive bony changes. The operation was done, and the specimen showed the edematous connective tissues infiltrated with chronic inflammatory cells and granulomatas, which were composed of the epitheloid cells, macrophages, fibroblasts and small round cells.
