Below are the strongest indications of Tuberculinum in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.

Tuberculinum is indicated in renal affections, but caution is necessary, for where skin and intestines do not perform normally even high potencies are dangerous. In chronic cystitis, brilliant and permanent results ( Dr. Nebel Montreux).
Of undoubted value in the treatment of Incipient tuberculosis. Especially adapted to the light-complexioned, narrow-chested subjects.

When Symptoms are constantly changing and well-selected remedies fail to improve, and cold is taken from the slightest exposure. Rapid emaciation. Of great value in epilepsy, neurasthenia and in nervous children. Diarrhoea in children running for weeks, extreme wasting, bluish pallor, exhaustion. Mentally deficient children. Enlarged tonsils. Skin affections, Acute rheumatism. Very sensitive, mentally and physically. General exhaustion. Nervous weakness. Trembling. Epilepsy. Arthritis.
