Abstract

Tuberculosis associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection continues to represent a serious medical and public health problem. Physicians' awareness of this entity is important because the diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion. A continuing increase in the cases of tuberculosis associated with HIV infection is predicted unless extensive efforts are directed toward detection of this dual infection and implementation of effective tuberculosis preventive therapy and treatment programs.
