Moro's tuberculine reaction
Percutaneous tuberculin reaction employed as a diagnostic measure. The skin reaction is provoked by rubbing the skin with a salve of tuberculin. It is only applicable on children, as the skin of adults often is too thick to let through the tuberculin.

Pirquet's test, under Clemens Peter Pirquet von Cesenatico, Austrian paediatrician, 1874-1929.
