Local tuberculosis programme and notification data from the labour department did not show an increased risk of active tuberculosis among health care workers.
In the post-chemotherapy era in developed countries, few studies demonstrated an occupational risk of tuberculin conversion outside of outbreak settings, and few studies were able to conclusively demonstrate an increased risk of active tuberculosis among health care workers.

The increase in multiple-drug resistant tuberculosis has re-taught physicians about the importance of pursuing and ensuring treatment until cure.

Although administrative control, engineering control, and personal protection are widely accepted control measures, it is difficult to quantify their sions: although an increased liability to tuberculosis among health care workers is expected due to the concentration of infectious patients in their environment, prompt diagnosis and initiation of treatment may minimise the risk.

1995 may;1(3):ulosis: a survey and review of current information1kings county hospital, brooklyn, new york, ctdespite being a treatable and preventable disease, tuberculosis will kill an estimated 30 million people during the current decade.
The hiv epidemic is playing a pivotal and permissive role in the resurgence of tuberculosis morbidity and mortality in those populations where tuberculosis and hiv are prevalent and overlap.
Literature search of pubmed was performed up to december selection: original and major review articles related to tuberculosis among health care workers and guidelines for prevention were extraction: relevant data were extracted from our literature review and local synthesis: earlier experimental data demonstrated an airborne spread of tuberculosis and a steady state mathematical model for quantification of the transmission risk.
Tuberculosis is a global problem, and increases in case rates are occurring not only in the developing countries of the world but also in several industrialized nations, such as the united states.
In countries with limited resource, the situation may be different, with a higher tuberculosis incidence among health care workers.

Coincident with the resurgence of tuberculosis in the united states, there has also been an alarming increase in the number and proportion of cases caused by strains of mycobacterium tuberculosis that are resistant to multiple first-line drugs.
