Abstract

We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of MDR-TB among patients presenting with suspected MDR-TB to a tertiary care facility in Pune, India. We found 53% prevalence of MDR-TB among patients suspected to have MDRTB. We also found XDR-TB pattern in seven cases. This finding at an urban government medical college might be useful for the country program to plan for advanced TB diagnostics and treatment facilities to curb the MDR-TB epidemic in India.
