One of the difficulties in the rapid laboratory diagnosis of tuberculosis is the time required for a satisfactory growth of the tubercle bacillus to appear on artificial medium. This delay is even more important when it is also desirable to determine the sensitivity of the organism. While in some cases it may not be of paramount importance to obtain a rapid growth of the tubercle bacillus for routine diagnosis, the result of the sensitivity test to be of any great value to the clinician must be… CONTINUE READING
