Additional drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from resected cavities among patients with multidrug-resistant or extensively drug-resistant pulmonary tuberculosis



Additional drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from resected cavities among patients with multidrug-resistant or extensively drug-resistant pulmonary tuberculosis



Clinical Infectious Diseases 54(6): E51-E54



The pathogenesis of increasing drug resistance among patients with multidrug-resistant or extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis undergoing treatment is poorly understood. Increasing drug resistance found among Mycobacterium tuberculosis recovered from cavitary isolates compared with paired sputum isolates suggests pulmonary cavities may play a role in the development of worsening tuberculosis drug resistance.
