INTRODUCTION. Formal policies and control efforts addressing tuberculosis (TB) in children have been limited, in part due to lack of a standardized case definition and difficulties associated with establishing a definitive diagnosis .However, since diagnostic and treatment tools for TB in children have begun to improve significantly, TB in children has received increasing attention by.
