Tuberculosis (TB) is still a leading cause of death worldwide. Almost a third of the world's population is infected with TB bacilli, and each year approximately 8 million people develop active tuberculosis and 2 million die as a result. However, there are few studies of long-term TB treatment outcomes from Directly Observed Therapy, Short-course (DOTS) programs in high-burden settings and particularly settings of high drug resistance. This study is a systematic review to evidence the incidence… Expand
Clinico-epidemiological profile and adherence to antitubercular treatment of tuberculosis patients in a city of Maharashtra
Tuberculosis is one of the primary diseases of poverty. A third of the world’s population is thought to be infected with M. tuberculosis, and new infections occur at a rate of about one per second.Expand
Radiological findings of pulmonary tuberculosis in indigenous patients in Dourados, MS, Brazil*
Based on the hypothesis that indigenous patients represent a population without genetically determined resistance to tuberculosis, the present study may enhance the knowledge about how the pulmonary form of this disease manifests in susceptible individuals. Expand
Limited T Cell Receptor Repertoire Diversity in Tuberculosis Patients Correlates with Clinical Severity
Results from this study promote a better knowledge about the public characteristics of T cells among TB patients and provides new insight into the TCR repertoire associated with clinic presentation in TB patients. Expand
Clinical observation on pericardiocentesis and glucocorticoid in the treatment of tuberculous pericarditis.
Tuberculous pericarditis in anti-TB treatment on the basis of using pericar-diocentesis and sugar cortical hormone treat-ment, can achieve an ideal effect. Expand

Pleural D-dimer levels are higher in TPE than other causes of pleural effusions and might be useful as a simple, surrogate marker for TPE. Expand
Nuclear medicine imaging in tuberculosis using commercially available radiopharmaceuticals
The results obtained indicate that nuclear medicine could be an important noninvasive method for the determination of disease activity, detection of extrapulmonary TB, and determination of response to therapy. Expand
Robust pulmonary segmentation for chest radiography, combining enhancement, adaptive morphology and innovative active contours
This work presents an automatic pulmonary segmentation approach that overcomes constraints and is robust and more accurate than other methods of lung segmentation, besides being a fully automatic method of Lung segmentation. Expand
Taste refers to a perception arising from the stimulation of taste buds present on the surface of the tongue. Humans can distinguish among five components of taste: sourness, saltiness, sweetness,Expand


Extrapulmonary tuberculosis.
The clinical presentation of EPTB is atypical, tissue samples for the confirmation of diagnostic can sometimes be difficult to procure, and the conventional diagnostic methods have a poor yield, the diagnosis is often delayed, so research is required for evolving the most suitable treatment regimens. Expand
Skeletal tuberculosis. A review with patient presentations and discussion.
Skeletal tuberculosis occurs in approximately 1 per cent of patients with tuberculosis and early diagnosis is essential since excellent therapy is available and far advanced destruction and long suffering and disability can be avoided. Expand

patient. 2 While the average number of cases of pulmonary TB cases has declined by 5% yearly from 1963 to 1986, the number of extrapulmonary TB cases declined only by 0.9% yearly. Nevertheless, theExpand
Extrapulmonary Tuberculosis in Patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection
The annual number of cases of culture-proven extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB) at our hospital increased from 47 cases in 1983 to 113 cases in 1988. At least 43% (199) of 464 consecutive patients withExpand
Effect of antituberculosis drug resistance on response to treatment and outcome in adults with tuberculous meningitis.
Isoniazid and/or streptomycin resistance probably has no detrimental effect on the outcome of TBM when patients are treated with first-line antituberculosis drugs, but combined isoniaZid and rifampicin resistance is strongly predictive of death. Expand
Gastrointestinal tuberculosis: an eighteen-patient experience and review.
It is suggested that the diagnosis of GI and hepatic TB is often delayed, possible reasons for delay include nonspecific signs and symptoms and failure to consider TB in the initial differential diagnosis. Expand
Tuberculous Pericarditis
Research is needed to improve the diagnosis, assess the effectiveness of adjunctive steroids, and determine the impact of HIV infection on the outcome of tuberculous pericarditis. Expand
Tuberculous Lymphadenopathy in Adults: a Review of 35 Cases
In conclusion, a patient with TB LAP generally presents with a few small, painless, cervical lymph nodes, which are slowly enlarging, and use of anti-TB drugs is the main therapeutic option. Expand
Prevention of nosocomial transmission of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis in rural South African district hospitals: an epidemiological modelling study
A synergistic combination of available nosocomial infection control strategies could prevent nearly half of XDR tuberculosis cases, even in a resource-limited setting. Expand
Tuberculosis of pericardium, larynx, and other uncommon sites.
Tuberculosis-pericarditis occurs from hematogenous spread or as an extension of nfected mediastinal lymph nodes or pulmonary tuberculosis, and is often seen in association with active uberculosis at another site. Expand
