DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.234
Synopsis: 
Pakistan in recent times, is placed in the 5th place among high TB prevalent countries, world wide. Cases of extended TB resistance have also been reported in Pakistan, whereas TB resistance cases are common. Given the country's cultural constraints, it is speculated that there are gender differences in TB prevalence and treatment outcomes. The current study provides the data for the risk factors that affect the development of TB based on gender and evaluates the treatment outcomes. Evaluating the past practices and identifying the risk factors, can provide us important information for future directions to control and treat TB in a high TB prevalent country such as Pakistan.

ABSTRACT

Background: Gender differences among tuberculosis (TB) patients are notable; however, studies evaluating the impact of gender on treatment outcomes have reported inconsistent results.

Aim: The aim of the current study is to observe gender differences among TB patients and to evaluate the relationship between gender and treatment outcome.

Despite the normal values of spirometery, patient clinical presentation did not related to her spirometry values. After troubling four years, doctors initiated Anti-IgE monoclonal antibody therapy that resulted in the patient's improvement. Often, during clinical practices doctors face challenges where they have to make patient decisions based on their clinical expertise rather than following the standard protocols

However, doctors at times have to look beyond clinical practice guidelines to treat their patients. Situational awareness and clinical experience often put doctors in a better position to treat and manage asthmatic patients.
