Tuberculosis in immunocompromised patients is often caused by Mycobacterial species other than Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Thus, detection of and differentiation between M. tuberculosis and nontuberculosis species is necessary for diagnosis of disease in these patients. Furthermore, when tissue changes show granulomatous inflammation, quick confirmation testing for mycobacterial infection is needed for conclusive diagnosis. The aim of this study was to validate the utility of a real-time… CONTINUE READING
