INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis (TB) is a respiratory-borne disease.It can hold most of the lungs and other tissues and organs.In this study, we aimed to offer the clinical and demographic data of TB patients who were followed-up in our province between 2012 and 2018.

METHODS: In our province, tuberculosis dispensary records were examined retrospectively between 2012 and 2108.
RESULTS: Of 249 patients, 125 (50.2%) were females and 124 (49.8%) were males.The mean age of the patients was 37.5 years.
There were 132 (53%) patients with pulmonary tuberculosis, 112(45%) with extrapulmonary tuberculosis and 5 (2%) patients with both pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis.239 cases(96%) were new cases and 10 (4%) patients had recurrence.While 109 (43.8%) of the patients had smear positivity, 13 patients(5.4%) were diagnosed with pleural biopsy and 87(34.6%) patients were diagnosed histopathologically with lymph and other organ biopsies.
In 13(5.4%) patients, only ADA elevation and 27(10.8%) patients were diagnosed clinically and radiologic. 111 (44.6%) patients had no contact and 38(15.3%) patients had a history of in house or out of home contact.In addition, 100(40.2%) patients had no known contact.101 of our patients have studied culture, 20 of them have culture negativity, 81 of them have culture positivity. 5 patients had rifampicin resistance, 4 had streptomycin resistance, 5 had ethambutol resistance and 11 had isoniazid resistance.While 6(2.4%) patients were dead, 78(31.3%) patients were cured.Treatment success was achieved in 153(61.5%) patients and treatment was abandoned in 8(3.2%) patients.


DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Tuberculosis is a disease that affects especially young people.Early diagnosis and treatment of TB patients are especially important for infectious diseases.
