      Tuberculosis (TB) is an occupational hazard for health care workers (HCWs) who are at greater risk of developing TB than the general population. The objective of this study was to compare the difference in TB incidence among HCWs with versus without a history of working in TB wards, to estimate the incidence of TB among HCWs, and to identify risk Cited by: Results: The prevalence of pulmonary tuberculosis among severely acute malnourished children was %; out of them % were females. % of tuberculosis patient had history of contact in the house hold was more among females. % of the children were positive for sputum or gastric aspirate smearFile Size: KB.
