Multidrug-resistant TB is of particular concern to both clinicians and national TB programmes: in 2017, there were 558 000 new rifampicin-resistant cases and 460 000 confirmed multidrug-resistant TB cases. Despite extensive investigation over the years, there is still a great deal to learn about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of TB. This Monograph brings together chapters from global TB experts and begins with a patients’ perspective that sets the tone. The following chapters cover: the history of TB epidemiology strategies for control and elimination clinical and laboratory diagnosis imaging treatment and drugs TB in children and different patient populations comorbidities clinical cases and much more.
