Role of high resolution computed tomography in childhood tuberculosis diagnosis

Conclusion: improvement of the diagnostic algorithm by using HRCT was argued by the identification of specific patterns. However in few cases HRCT was not relevant and molecular genetic method remained the final tool in the diagnosis of childhood TB.

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): V. Guétin-Poirier, J. Rivière, B. DufourAbstractIn the French bovine tuberculosis (bTB) surveillance program, tracing-on and back investigations have a major importance as, in 2016, they represented about 21% of the detected outbreaks. Building on our previous work on the other surveillance system components (Poirier et al., 2019), we evaluated for the first time the sensitivity and the cost of the two existing protocols of bTB’s tracing-on investigations trough scenario tree modelling with a stochastic a...

ConclusionIn residential settings, sufficient exposure to a variety of dusts, primarily silica-based dusts as well as those containing other less-fibrogenic materials, such as carbon, silicates and iron, have been shown to cause mixed-dust pneumoconiosis. In settings where the incidence of TB is very high, such as South Africa, the diagnosis of MDP might be overlooked due to the similarities of both diseases in their radiological presentations, especially when a detailed history of domestic exposure is omitted.

[The Conversation Africa] The infectious disease burden in Africa is very high, particularly for tuberculosis (TB), malaria and HIV/AIDS. In 2018, nearly a quarter (24%) of TB cases in the world were in Africa. The region accounted for 93% of malaria cases. The continent also bears the brunt of the HIV epidemic: 20.6 million of the 37.9 million people living with HIV are in eastern and southern Africa.
