Tuberculosis-exposed newborns are at high risk of developing rapid onset and severe disease. Potential risk factors for tuberculosis-exposed newborns and infants to progress to disease are highlighted, and preventive measures : Adrie Bekker.

Intrathoracic tuberculous lymphadenopathy in adults often is a manifestation of primary infection as it is in children; however, reactivation of a latent nodal focus or progressive involvement of intrathoracic lymph node in post-primary pulmonary tuberculosis may account for some by: Background: Diagnosis of pediatric pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) is a challenge. Symptoms are nonspecific. Young children are unable to expectorate sputum samples; the procedures for obtaining respiratory samples are invasive. Thus Mycobacterium tuberculosis cultures and smears often are _disibledevent= ). Conclusion: This study reports that Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA can be .

Formal policies and control efforts addressing tuberculosis (TB) in children have been limited, in part due to lack of a standardized case definition and difficulties associated with establishing a definitive diagnosis [].However, since diagnostic and treatment tools for TB in children have begun to improve significantly, TB in children has received increasing attention by.
