Resistant tubercular inection ( rather pathgenesis) are now a days a burning issue. Treatment line is as per the catogery of resistance. MDR tuberculosis. Extreme drug resistant TB. This is decided by sputum culture and sensitivity testing by microbiologist. After diagnosing the condition ( resistance and senitivity) Physician decides the treatment regime containing newer antimicrobial agents.
Take care..
