Title Multidrug resistance in patients with osteoarticular tuberculosis
Author Serik Tutkyshbaev, Layla Amanzholova
Abstract This paper describes prevalence of multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) among 285 patients treated in clinic of National Center for TB Problems (Kazakhstan) during 2007-2009. Data were obtained through clinical examination of patients and bacteriological culture investigation of postoperative material. The drug resistance in patients with OAT in 54.0% was confirmed on the base of microbiological investigation (culturing on Lowenstein-Jensen medium), and in 12.6% clinical resistance took place. The relatively high multidrug resistance revealed in patients with OAT is connected to the thorough sampling of the pathological material intraoperatively.
