Hello and welcome to HCM,
The cytology report of your daughter is characteristic of tuberculosis
A positive ZN staining for acid fast bacilli (AFB) is confirmatory of tuberculous infection.
It is a treatable infection.
the treatment is long and is called anti tubercular treatment.
The duration of the treatment is long. It may last from 9 months to one year.
The compliance of the treatment is very important. No dose should be missed.
the whole treatment consists of atleast four medicines taken during different times.
Multivitamins and liver
protective drugs should also be added in the treatment regime.
Consult a pulmonologist
to start the therapy.
Thanks and take care.
Dr Shailja P Wahal
