Introduction

This book is a concise, straightforward practical guide to the clinical management of patients having drug resistant tuberculosis infections. It covers every aspect of drug resistant tuberculosis, starting from epidemiology and bacteriology to a description of the latest diagnostic tests and a list of tuberculosis drugs. Readers will find clear guidelines for selection and administration of treatment regimens for the different types of drug resistant infections as well as instructions on follow-up procedures for such cases.

The book also includes a series of clinical cases illustrating some of the most frequent problems encountered by doctors while treating drug resistant tuberculosis in a clinical setting.

Drug Resistant Tuberculosis: Practical guide for clinical management is a useful handbook for general practitioners and medical students interested in learning about multi drug resistant tuberculosis and pulmonary care of patients having advanced infections.
