Treating Tuberculosis—Present and Future. Mycobacteria are notoriously tough micro-organisms. Their intrinsic resistance to many antibiotics can be largely attributed to the unique structure of the cell envelope, which is rich in high molecular weight fatty acids and peptidoglycan cross-linkage [].Permeability is mainly restricted to lipophilic molecules [] such Cited by: 6.

Tuberculosis (TB) is a highly contagious bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), affecting about 1/3rd of the world population and being responsible for lot of deaths worldwide, despite the progress achieved in the diagnosis and treatment fields.

There has been a recent global resurgence of tuberculosis in both resource—limited and some resource—rich countries. Several factors have contributed to this resurgence, including HIV infection, overcrowding, and immigration. Childhood tuberculosis represents a sentinel event in the community suggesting recent transmission from an infectious adult. The diagnosis of Cited by: Urinary tract tuberculosis (UTTB) is an insidious disease with non-specific constitutional symptoms that are often unrecognized and lead to delayed diagnosis. Advanced UTTB may cause loss of kidney function. In the majority of literature, UTTB is reviewed together with genital tuberculosis because often both sites are involved simultaneously; “Genitourinary tuberculosis” Author: Gerardo Amaya-Tapia and Guadalupe Aguirre-Avalos.

If the bacteria that the person has are assumed to be drug-sensitive, then the patient should start on tuberculosis treatment with first line drugs as soon as possible.
