Abstract/OtherAbstract:
During January 2012, the Puerto Rico Department of Health (PRDOH) detected a tuberculosis (TB) outbreak among residents of a long-term-care facility in the San Juan metropolitan area. The same rare Mycobacterium tuberculosis genotype was identified in isolates from four patients. This facility housed 40 men, aged 40-71 years, with severe mental illness. During April 2012, CDC assisted PRDOH with the investigation to describe outbreak epidemiology, identify and prioritize contacts for evaluation and treatment, and provide recommendations on interventions aimed at stopping TB transmission.
