The Management of Extrapulmonary Tuberculosis

  • L. P. Ormerod
Part of the Chapman & Hall Medical Microbiology Series book series (CHMMS)


Although not as frequent numerically as pulmonary and intrathoracic tuberculosis (TB), extrapulmonary forms of TB make up an important proportion of all forms of TB. Indeed, there is some evidence in developing countries that the level of extrapulmonary TB has stayed fairly constant, in the presence of falling levels of respiratory TB, thereby causing the proportion of TB at extrapulmonary sites to rise relative to respiratory TB (1).
