Diagnosis and clinical outcomes of extrapulmonary tuberculosis in antiretroviral therapy programmes in low‐ and middle‐income countries: a multicohort study

Please see this link below for the study that assessed diagnostic modalities and TB treatment outcomes of EPTB compared to PTB in HIV‐positive adults in clinical care in ART programmes in six International epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) regions in sub‐Saharan Africa, Asia‐Pacific, Caribbean, Central and South America Central and South America.

This study concludes that diagnosis of EPTB in ART programmes in these areas is based mainly on clinical symptoms, and the introduction of molecular assays is still challenging despite major efforts.
