TB-PCR and drug resistance pattern in BALF in smear-negative active pulmonary TB.

Abstract

SETTING A tertiary referral hospital in Bangkok, Thailand. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy of a bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) tuberculosis (TB) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for the diagnosis of sputum smear-negative pulmonary TB (PTB) and the usefulness of a drug-resistant (DR) TB-PCR assay compared with standard drug susceptibility… (More)
