MMWR: Missed Opportunities for Prevention of Tuberculosis Among Persons With HIV Infection--Selected Locations, United States, 1996-1997

NPIN admin's picture
This report discusses a study that examined the clinic records of TB programs to determine whether the programs used recommended practices to manage the treatment of HIV-positive persons who were exposed to TB. The study showed that few close contacts were assessed for HIV and that one quarater of those known to be HIV-infected were not screened completely for TB. Of eligible HIV-positive contacts, a third started and a sixth completed latent TB infection (LTBI) treatment. The report makes suggestions for improving screening of persons exposed to active TB.
