160 adult cases of pulmonary tuberculosis excreting bacilli in their sputum who failed to respond to previous treatment were retreated with ethambutol plus prothionamide and pyrazinamide (group ‘A’) and with ethambutol plus prothionamide (group ‘B’). Successful results were obtained in 90 %and 79 % respectively in the two groups at one year. However, the three-drugs regimen was associated with higher incidence of drug toxicity. Ethambutol was free from side effects. No case of rctrobulbar neuritis was observed.
