The types of tuberculous patients seen by the clinics and admitted to tuberculosis hospitals and sanatoria can be divided into three general groups according to type of treatment required: (i) a large proportion who can be treated at home under supervision of a clinic or local practitioners, (ii) a smaller proportion who need hospitalization, and (iii) some chronic open cases who excrete drug-resistant bacilli and, therefore, need isolation in ex-patient colonies, rehabilitation or works centres, or isolation homes.
