Evaluation of the GeneXpert MTB/RIF assay for rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis and detection of rifampin resistance in pulmonary and extrapulmonary
Out of 2585 pulmonary specimens screened, 335 (%) were positive by CBNAAT, whereas 18 out of 265 extrapulmonary
samples were identified as positive by CBNAAT (Table 4 and Fig.
We defined an extrapulmonary
NTM infection case as having [greater than or equal to] 1 isolates from skin/soft tissue (wound, abscess, tissue, or exit catheter); disseminated sites (blood, bone marrow, cerebrospinal fluid, pericardial fluid, or peritoneal fluid); lymph node (lymph node or neck abscess); joint (synovial or joint fluid); or other (urine, eye, sinus, or nasopharyngeal).
Metastases other than lung were defined as extrapulmonary
GeneXpert MTB/ RIF assay: a new hope for extrapulmonary
Comparison of enhanced Mycobacterium tuberculosis amplified direct test with COBAS AMPLICOR Mycobacterium tuberculosis assay for direct detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in respiratory and extrapulmonary
This study aimed to investigate the importance of MPV as an inflammatory marker with ACE in predicting the activation and severity of the disease in sarcoidosis patients with pulmonary and extrapulmonary
Combination therapy is usually preferred in cases with severe LD and extrapulmonary
3% is a better target for amplification of DNA from extrapulmonary
samples compared to MPB64 with a sensitivity of 64.
The findings of the present study showed several factors were associated with being less likely to abandon TB treatment: being older in age; self-identifying as indigenous or of Asian ethnicity; having participated in or completed higher education (beyond high school); not living in a rural area; being institutionalized in a prison; having diabetes; having extrapulmonary
TB; and being assigned to DOTS.
