Abstract/OtherAbstract:
After decades of decline, tuberculosis case rates are again increasing in the United States. The increases have been most dramatic among minority young adults of childbearing age. The availability of adequate chemotherapy means that the outcome for both mother and child in pregnancy complicated by tuberculosis should be good. Complete case finding and screening of high-risk adults is essential to bring tuberculosis under control again.
