The threat of tuberculosis (TB) have become increasingly with the fatal combination of co-morbid conditions like human
immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The aim of the study was to obtain a
comprehensive data pertaining to the epidemiology and clinical evaluation of TB alone and with co-morbid condition like HIV/
AIDS in the general population of the four states of Malaysia i.e. Penang, Sabah, Sarawak and Selangor. A retrospective and
prospective, two phases study was conducted from January 2006 to December 2008, and follow up were made until March 2009.
Of 9337 TB patients, 1060 (11.3%) had TB with HIV/AIDS. EPTB and PTB with EPTB (both) were found 2.745 and 1.945 times
higher prevalence rate among TB-HIV/AIDS group of patients as compare to PTB group of patients, respectively. Only 37.3%
TB-HIV/AIDS cases were on HAART while 130 (12.3%) cases were multiple HAART defaulters. Treatment success rate was 1.393
times higher among TB patients without HIV/AIDS (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.206 -1.609, P < 0.001). Patients with HIV/
AIDS had 3.412 times higher odd ratio for death. In conclusion, HIV/AIDS affects treatment outcomes and a risk factor for death
in TB patients.
