As then established for each patient. We compared allcause mortality rates between EPTB and of age-adjusted Texas population as well as of another comparable cohort of patients with latent tuberculosis treated during the same period [13,14]. The latent tuberculosis patient cohort was previously reported by us [13,14], while the Texas age-adjusted all-cause population mortality rates are published

O the nearest month. Based on proposals in the published literature, we examined the following categorized therapy durations defined a priori: -10 months [5,11,12]. In addition, we took an unbiased approach, specified no categories, and identified cut-off levels based on the data by employing classification and regression analysis (CART). Additionally, based

Methods: This is a retrospective cohort study of all patients treated for EPTB in the state of Texas between January 2000 and December 2005, who had no pulmonary disease. Clinical and epidemiological factors were abstracted from electronic records of the Report of Verified Case of Tuberculosis. The long-term outcome, which is death by

Egimen is unknown, so that it is unclear if standard short course therapy is effective in reducing long-term mortality. We have developed methods to use the Texas electronic database to examine long-term outcomes such as death in tuberculosis patients [6]. This study is focused on the evaluation of long-term outcomes in patients with EPTB, and the demographic and therapy factors predictive of poor

Ality in genitourinary tuberculosis was no different from latent tuberculosis, while meningitis had the poorest long-term outcome of 46.2 . Compared to meningitis the HR for death was 0.50 (CI: 0.27-0.91) for lymphatic disease, 0.42 (CI: 0.21-0.81) for bone/joint disease, and 0.59 (CI: 0.27-1.31) for peritonitis. The relationship between mortality and therapy duration for each type of EPTB was a u
