Overview: Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in people living with HIV (PLWH). The epidemiologic link between HIV and TB is strong even in a low HIV prevalence country such as India
– hence all Indian physicians that see patients with suspected or confirmed TB should understand how to approach TB diagnosis and treatment among PLWH, even if they are not working in a community where HIV infection is common. This article provides general practitioners with a concise and practical overview of TB screening, prevention, diagnosis and treatment, in PLWH.
