Abstract

Immune-dependent granulomatous inflammation is important in the pathogenesis of both schistosomiasis and tuberculosis. A case has previously been made for a role for schistosome egg-induced granulomas in the onward transmission of infection. Here, Mike Doenhoff suggests that a similar hypothesis applies to tuberculosis.
