INTRODUCTION Studies on the prevalence of and risk factors for tuberculosis (TB) among newly diagnosed human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected children in sub-Saharan Africa are scarce and in Nigeria there is paucity of reported data. We determined the prevalence of and risk factors for pulmonary TB (PTB) in newly diagnosed (treatment-naïve) HIV-1 infected children at the pediatric HIV clinic of the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) in Nigeria. METHODS We performed a retrospective…

Mortality among pulmonary tuberculosis and HIV-1 co-infected Nigerian children being treated for pulmonary tuberculosis and on antiretroviral therapy: a retrospective cohort study.
TLDR
In the clinic setting, mortality among PTB-HIV co-infected children being treated for PTB and on ART was low, however, those presenting with severe immunosuppression and who are males and very young, should be monitored more closely during follow-up in order to further reduce mortality.
Childhood HIV and Tuberculosis Co-Infection in a Nigerian Tertiary Hospital
TLDR
Treatment failure is a significant outcome associated with category I Anti-Tb therapy in patients with significant immunological suppression, unsuppressed viral load and those with disseminated and miliary tuberculosis, and there is a need to revise Anti- Tb medication regimen in order to prevent treatment failure and resistance among these susceptible groups of children.
Prevalence of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis among HIV-positive Patients Attending COCIN Rehabilitation Center in Mangu, Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria
TLDR
It is recommended that further studies be conducted in the entire Plateau State for possible intervention in terms of improve antiretroviral treatment coverage tuberculosis screening, treatment and prevention as a way of reducing active TB among people living with HIV.
The burden of vaccine-preventable diseases among HIV-infected and HIV-exposed children in sub-Saharan Africa: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis was completed to identify the incidence, prevalence and case-fatality rates (CFR) attributed to various vaccine-preventable diseases among HIV-infected and HIV-exposed children in sub-Saharan Africa.
Determinants of Sputum Smear Positivity among Tuberculosis Suspected Patients in Bahir Dar City, Northwest Ethiopia
TLDR
This study showed the presence of high smear positive pulmonary TB among TB suspected patients in Bahir Dar City, Ethiopia, which clearly indicates that TB continues important public health challenge in Ethiopia.
Global Tuberculosis Burden: Is Nigeria Losing The War?
TLDR
The ongoing TB control programme in Nigeria should also specifically target the IDPs so as to avert a potential explosion of the disease with catastrophic consequences.
Predicting standard threshold shifts for occupational hearing loss among miners at a large-scale platinum mine in South Africa
TLDR
The combined effects of age, sex, years of exposure to noise, and noise exposure levels, and strength of associations can be used to predict STS for this group of miners.

Factors Associated With Pulmonary Tuberculosis-HIV Co-Infection in Treatment-Naive Adults in Jos, North Central Nigeria
TLDR
PTB was prevalent among HIV patients seeking care in the authors' setting and severe immune suppression and oropharyngeal candidiasis were associated with PTB-HIV co-infection in patients at presentation, potential implications for severeimmune suppression and advanced HIV disease are a poor clinical outcome and further spread of PTB.
The Clinical Burden of Tuberculosis Among Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Infected Children in Western Kenya and the Impact of Combination Antiretroviral Treatment
TLDR
These data suggest a high rate of TB diagnosis among HIV-infected children, with severe immune suppression, school attendance, orphan status, very low weight-for-height, and attending an urban clinic being key risk factors.
Tuberculosis in human immunodeficiency virus infected Ugandan children starting on antiretroviral therapy.
TLDR
After TB screening was instituted in 2006, the proportion of new TB cases diagnosed after starting ART decreased by 70% (95%CI 51-82, P < 0.001), abating the early excess risk.
Clinical correlate of tuberculosis in HIV co-infected children at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, Nigeria.
TLDR
Tuberculosis co-infection with HIV in children is common in this environment and severe weight loss can be used as a clinical guide to identify HIV-infected children at risk of co- Infection with TB who will require further evaluation.

TLDR
Pediatric TB-HIV co-infection is common and mortality is high in this cohort of Malawian children and Prompt initiation of ART should be emphasized in this high-risk patient population.
Clinical presentation and outcome of Tuberculosis in Human Immunodeficiency Virus infected children on anti-retroviral therapy
TLDR
Starting HAART at an earlier stage is likely to reduce morbidity and mortality related to TB, particularly in TB-endemic areas, particularly on HIV-infected children on HAART.
Tuberculosis in human immunodeficiency virus-infected and human immunodeficiency virus-exposed children in New York City
TLDR
During a period of high tuberculosis incidence in NYC, 3% of HIV-infected children in the authors' cohort had tuberculosis, higher than the rate in uninfected children born to HIV-positive mothers in the same cohort.
Risk Factors for First-line Antiretroviral Treatment Failure in HIV-1 Infected Children Attending Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos, North Central Nigeria
TLDR
Cotrimoxazole prophylaxis should be encouraged in HIV-infected children while they await commencement of ART, which may improve ART adherence and thus reduce the risk of treatment failure.
Mother-to-Child Transmission Outcomes of HIV-Exposed Infants Followed Up in Jos North-Central Nigeria.
TLDR
In North-central Nigeria where HIV is prevalent, ART started before pregnancy is enormously effective in preventing mother-to-child transmission, and adoption of WHO 'Option B+' deserves serious consideration.

TLDR
Enuring clinician compliance with TB screening before ART and ensuring earlier ART initiation before children suffer from advanced HIV disease and nutritional compromise might reduce TB morbidity during ART.
