By SAURABH JHA, MD Slumdog TB No one knows who gave Rahul Roy tuberculosis. Roy’s charmed life as a successful trader involved traveling in his Mercedes C class between his apartment on the plush Nepean Sea Road in South Mumbai and offices in Bombay Stock Exchange. He cared little for Mumbai’s weather. He seldom rolled down his car windows – his ambient atmosphere, optimized for his comfort, rarely changed. Historically TB, or “consumption” as it was known, was a Bohemian malady; the chronic suffering produced a rhapsody which produced fine art. TB was fashionable in Victorian Britain...

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Academic RadiologyAuthor(s): Sagar Kulkarni, Saurabh JhaTuberculosis is a leading cause of death from infectious disease worldwide, and is an epidemic in many developing nations. Countries where the disease is common also tend to have poor access to medical care, including diagnostic tests. Recent advancements in artificial intelligence may help to bridge this gap. In this article, we review the applications of artificial intelligence in the diagnosis of tuberculosis using chest radiography, covering simple computer-aided diagnosis systems to more advanced deep lea...

Conclusions: COPD has an aggravating effect on the course of tuberculosis, contributes to the development of severe chronic forms of the disease, which complicates treatment of patients. In the presence of COPD in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis, therapy adjustment is required to improve the effectiveness of TB treatment.

Introduction: DM is known to increase the risk of active TB disease approximately 3 fold, and contributes to adverse TB treatment outcomes such as death, treatment failure and relapse. There are no studies in Indian subjects comparing the radiologic pattern in pulmonary TB patients with DM (PTB-DM) and those without DM (PTB-only).Aims and Objectives: To describe and compare the pattern and extent of radiological involvement in PTB-only, PTB-DMTo assess the early treatment response between the groups. Methods: Ours is a retrospective study of radiographs of consecutive patients with PTB diagnosed in the department of pulmon...

Conclusions: TB screening among socially vulnerable citizens is feasible and can identify TB thereby possibly reducing its spread. Future TB screening should primarily focus on sputum analysis. Identification of comorbidities resulted in additional investigations and early diagnosis of e.g. cancer.

Background: Despite an efficient cure, tuberculosis (TB) is a global cause of mortality and morbidity. Patients with treated TB may suffer from sequelae, impairing their quality of life.Aim: Assess the predictive factors linked with the occurrence of sequelae among TB treated patients.Methods: A retrospective (2010-2017) study that included patients with pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in Pulmonology department C of Abderrahmen Mami Hospital in Tunisia. Sequelae were defined by the persistance of radiographic abnormalities in the chest X-ray after a well conducted treatment. Patients were divided in 2 groups. G1 : patients wit...
