Tuberculosis has been an elusive infectious disease. In India, two deaths occur every three minutes due to tuberculosis. [1] As modern antituberculosis therapy (ATT) can cure all patients, these deaths can be prevented. But it is imperative that these patients take ATT for the prescribed duration (minimum of six months). Hence, adherence to treatment plays an important role in the success of the treatment.
