This handbook, a distillation of recommendations from international TB guidelines and the accumulated clinical experience of its authors, provides practical information for clinicians involved in the care of patients with tuberculosis (TB) and other mycobacterial diseases. Topics covered are: management of drug-sensitive and drug-resistant TB; latent TB infection; pregnancy and TB; HIV and TB; nontuberculous mycobacterial infections; BCG vaccination and BCG installation for bladder cancer.

The emphasis is on presenting a practical approach to the many clinical issues, common and uncommon, that arise in the day-to-day management of patients with mycobacterial infections. The handbook is primarily intended for specialists and trainee specialists working in the ward and in the outpatient clinic, but it should also appeal to pharmacists and nurses involved with TB care, and to students.
