Prevalence of initial drug resistance and acquired drug resistance was studied in 255 and 500 strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis respectively for two drugs viz. INH, and Streptomycin; 16.8 percent strains from previously untreated patients were resistant to one or both drugs. This prevalence has remained more or less the same during the last 15 years. Prevalence of acquired drug resistance was was 71.0 percent, which too is comparable to the 1966 figures for this laboratory.
