Tuberculosis in HIV: Making Good with What We Have

Issue: 
Pages: 
107–8a
In developing countries, the risk of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in patients with HIV is two to six times that of persons without HIV infection (10, 11). The mortality among persons with HIV and TB is high. Even with the availability of ART, the risk of TB is reduced by ART in persons with HIV but is still not restored to a level comparable to persons without HIV infection.
