Sputum from 110 admitted cases of pulmonary tuberculosis was examined by smear examination and by culture for the presence of mycotic organisms 36.36% of the cases had fungii in their sputum, 10% had Aspergillus and the remaining Candida albicans (26.36%). The isolation of the fungii was more common in patients with larger cavities, diabetics and in these who had had prolonged antituberculosis chemotherapy.
