Diagnosis of TB

A high index of suspicion is critical for the diagnosis of TB.

• sputum for stain (acid fast bacilli)

• sputum for culture (takes about 6 weeks but important)

• immunochromatographic fingerprick test (new and promising)

• biopsies on lesions/lymph nodes may be necessary

• fibre optic bronchoscopy to obtain sputum may be necessary

• consider HIV studies
