Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) develops when an organism grows resistant to at least two of the most potent TB medications - isoniazid and rifampin. Physicians use these medications to treat the majority of people who have tuberculosis. Extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR TB), a rare manifestation of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, causes the organism to develop resistance to isoniazid, rifampin, fluoroquinolone, and at least one of the three second-line injectables. Let's look at what extra precautions we may take to prevent drug-sensitive TB from progressing to MDR or XDR TB. Dr. Alpa Dalal will be discussing the various management approaches to curb the progression of TB live on Medflix!
