252 Possible Causes for PTB

  • Drug-induced Fever

    A 10-year-old girl with PTB was treated with isoniazid (H), rifampicin (R), ethambutol (E), and pyrazinamide (Z). She developed features of flu from the sixth day.[lungindia.com] We report a case of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) that developed isoniazid-induced flu-like syndrome, but could be cured with a modified regimen replacing isoniazid with levofloxacin[lungindia.com]

  • Tuberculosis

    A matched case-control study was conducted in 86 CWP patients with active PTB and 86 CWP controls without TB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ), 74.2% (80.8/100,000 person-years) sputum-smear-negative (SS-) PTB, and 7.8% (8.5/100,000 person-years) only extra-pulmonary TB (EPTB).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] INTRODUCTION: The molecular test Xpert MTB/RIF (Xpert) has been recommended for use in the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB); however, data on the cost of incorporating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pleural Tuberculosis

    […] with PTB on chest CT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mean age between patients with PTB and PTB/PD was similar.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Pleural tuberculosis (pTB) is a grave form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Microbiological tests are usually found to be inadequate for pTB diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Foot

    PTB was highly sensitive (86.7%) and specific (90.8%).[professional.diabetes.org] A PTB test was highly specific (91%) but had moderate sensitivity (60%). (PTB involves inserting a sterile, blunt stainless steel probe into an ulcerated lesion.[mdedge.com] Therefore, a positive PTB in an infected wound is highly suggestive of osteomyelitis, whereas a negative PTB test does not exclude the diagnosis.[ofid.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Lymph Node Tuberculosis

    An increased risk for PTB was found among patients with diabetes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No significant association was observed between SP110 variants and PTB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with diabetes mellitus had increased susceptibility to PTB.[journals.plos.org]

  • Phyllodes Tumor of the Breast

    […] malignant PTB (Poster presentation at 2014 American Society of Breast Surgeon annual meeting).[ictr.johnshopkins.edu] However, only three cases secondary to a phyllodes tumor of the breast (PTB) have been previously reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Table 3 Cytology diagnostic accuracy for PTB reported in literature Full table Surgical treatment Surgery is the preferred treatment for PTB.[jtd.amegroups.com]

  • Preterm Labor

    […] are essential for more successful management of PTB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tocolytics have been used for over 60 years for women with preterm labor, which ultimately can lead to preterm birth (PTB).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Birth outcome measures included gestational age, neonatal weight and length at birth and the rate of preterm birth (PTB).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Artificial Pneumothorax

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the usefulness of artificial pneumothorax (AP) in the management of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients when anti-tuberculosis treatment is ineffective[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] DESIGN: We evaluated the outcome of therapy in 214 patients with cavitary PTB bacteriologically confirmed by culture treated during 1998–2004, 78.9% of whom had multidrug[ingentaconnect.com] DESIGN: We evaluated the outcome of therapy in 214 patients with cavitary PTB bacteriologically confirmed by culture treated during 1998-2004, 78.9% of whom had multidrug[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Cavitary Tuberculosis

    OBJECTIVE: To answer whether FQ-containing duration-shortened regimens are non-inferior to standard therapy in the treatment of patients with non-cavitary PTB.[ingentaconnect.com] […] or extensively drug-resistant PTB (MDR-PTB and XDR-PTB, respectively).[who.int] […] containing regimens found that none of the experimental regimens were non-inferior to standard 6-month therapy in treating patients with drug-susceptible pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB[ingentaconnect.com]
