QuantiFERON-TB Gold In-Tube performance was evaluated in 19 French immunocompetent children (0.29-5.36 years; median: 1.52) with active tuberculosis. The rate of indeterminates results was 0/19 and the rates of positivity were 6/10 and 9/9 in <2 and 2- to 5-year-old children, respectively. QuantiFERON-TB Gold In-Tube in association with tuberculin skin test could improve diagnosis of tuberculosis even in young children.
