Powdered whole liver was used in cases of general amyloidosis secondary to bone tuberculosis. Seven children were given this therapy. One died shortly after the treatment was started. Another child died after fourteen months of treatment, although retrogression of the lardaceous disease was evident. In this instance, probably irreparable changes set in prior to the inception of the therapy. The remaining five showed no clinical signs of amyloidosis after treatment for a period of eighteen months.
