Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We carried out a tuberculin survey among 5-10 years old children in rural Mysore (n=1026) to estimate the annual risk of tuberculosis infection (ARTI). 90.8% of them had BCG scar. The prevalence of infection was estimated as 13.3% with 95% CI of 11.4-15.5 and ARTI as 1.38%. These figures are comparatively higher than what is reported from other places in India.
