Synopsis: 
The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between smear results, the clinical features and the levels of radiological involvement of tuberculosis (TB). The high-grade level of smear acid-resistant bacilli positivity has been linked to increased infectiousness in pulmonary TB.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The high-grade level of smear acid-resistant bacilli (ARB) positivity has been linked to increased infectiousness in pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). The ability to predict infectiousness is important in the management of the disease. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between smear results, the clinical features, and the levels of radiological involvement of TB.
