Abstract

Application of low-intensity laser radiation (LILR) in patients with infiltrative destructive pulmonary tuberculosis is founded on the model of experimental generalized tuberculosis. The method of laser-therapy, i.e. combined influence on affected organ and spleen, is worked out. Chemotherapy, including LILR, has proved to be affective in pulmonary tuberculosis.
