Abstract

A treatment-failure group of 115 patients were re-treated with either viomycin, pyrazinamide or cycloserine in combination with isoniazid. In 45 cases, these drugs were used to provide anti-microbial coverage for surgical intervention, with excellent results and a low Incidence of operative complications. Among 70 patients who were not suitable for surgical intervention, only 13 had good results. There was one case of hepato-toxicity in the pyrazinamide group, 5 cases of mild or severe psychosis in the cycloserine group, and one case of severe drug sensitivity reaction in the viomycin group.
