Tuberculosis is a disease of major public health significance in the United States. In spite of the existence of drugs for prevention and treatment, the incidence of tuberculosis is on the rise in the United States, particularly among certain high-risk groups. Primary care practitioners must be alerted to the increased incidence and changing epidemiology of tuberculosis and become skilled in methods of detection, prevention, and treatment.
