Abstract

Most of the available information on tuberculosis in children is based on hospital figures rather than on community surveys and, therefore, may not reflect the actual situation in the community. Tuberculosis in children is seldom infectious and does not constitute major public health hazard. Both morbidity and mortality from respiratory diseases is high in the pediatric age but it is much less due to Tuberculosis than other non- tuberculous respiratory diseases, mostly upper respiratory infection and mild tracheo-bronchial catarrh.
