Resistant Strain Mycobacterium Tuberculosis in Benin Metropolis

In countries with a high tuberculosis (TB) burden, Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a frequent cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), and the differential diagnosis of TB from common bacterial pneumonia is difficult. The varying clinical and radiographic presentation of CAP and TB according to patient age and comorbidity and the low sensitivity of acid-fast bacillus microscopy make it even more difficult to distinguish TB from common bacterial pneumonia. Therefore, an adjunct diagnostic method that can determine whether CAP is caused by pulmonary TB or other bacterial pathogens would have a clinical role in terms of isolating patients with TB and administering appropriate anti-TB medication or antibiotic treatment at an early stage.
