Once again,tuberculosis has become a serious threat worldwide to people of all socioeconomic levels. Early diagnosis is essential to allow satisfactory treatment and containment of this usually fatal infection. This profusely illustrated book documents the wide spectrum of tuberculosis encountered in the various organ systems, and correlates the images with clinical, laboratory, and histopathological findings. The value of the many different methods of imaging in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of tuberculosis at any age is discussed and illustrated. The epidemiology of tuberculosis and its relationship with AIDS are also explored. This book will be of great value at all levels of health care in the continuing fight against tuberculosis
