Blood disorders and tuberculosis.
Indian Journal of Tuberculosis, 28 (4).

Active tuberculous lesions were seen in 4.2% o!' the 164 patients with haematological
disorders as compared to 0.3% of 26,163 patients admitted for other diseases during the same period.
Of the 7 cases reported, one had drug induced hypoplastic anaemia and six cases of blood disorders
were associated with tuberculosis. There was no evidence in these cases that tuberculosis gave rise to
the blood dyscrasias. It was more likely that the blood disorder (leukaemia or marrow failure) by
compromising normal immune response resulted in reactivation of an old tuberculous lesion or possibly
in an exogenous re-infection.
