Abstract : Retest tuberculin reactions in rhesus (Macaca mulatta) monkeys to 0.2 ml of 1:10 dilution of veterinary-type old tuberculin given intradermally into the eyelid produced responses as seen by eye closure at 6 hours. With readings made at 1/4, 6, 24, and 48 hours, the earliest virginal site reaction was seen at 24 hours. There was a general tendency for the degree of response as seen by eye closure to be less at retesting. Several animals at retest produced negative or questionable responses at 6, 24, and 48 hours, but these were inconsistent in any one animal from one retest to the other.
