Conclusion: The epidemiological picture of TB showed that males were predominant in our study however female were more affected in younger age group compared to male. More than 51% of the cases were in productive age group which affects the socioeconomic condition of family and society. More than 2/3 of patients were from lower socioeconomic group with low BMI. Therefore improving nutrition and immunity can play an important role. 2.3% of the cases were HIV reactive and were on ART. Co-morbidities like COPD and Diabetes were seen in our study which were statistically significant and had impact on the treatment outcome of results. Significant delay in initiation of MDR-TB regimen from date of DST was seen in 24.3% cases which is matter of concern. Most of the patients had taken ATT from RNTCP in which Defaulter and relapse was major contributor of MDR-TB suspect in our study and patient taking ATT privately were less. Large number of cases which resides more than 150 kilometers from DRTB center initiated the drug after a gap of more than 19 days from the date of DST. PMID: 31315318 [PubMed - in process]
