Abstract:

India is one of the high burden TB countries in the world. Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem in multiple drug-resistance tuberculosis infections. MDR-TB and XDR-TB outbreaks have almost invariably been linked with HIV infection, resulting in exceptionally high patient mortality and highlighting the urgent need for rapid diagnosis and intervention in vulnerable populations, DM is a well-known risk factor for TB, and The epidemics of tobacco smoking and tuberculosis (TB) are colliding, and increasing evidence showed smoking was associated with an increased risk of active TBCo-relation of HIV, DM and Tobacco habited in MDR-TB suspected patient. A retrospective study was conducted in the TB culture and DST laboratory, Department of Microbiology, From May 2017 to January 2018. We received 585 sputum sample of suspected tuberculosis during study period, 466 were culture Positive, 15 (3%) were Human Immunodeficiency Virus infected, 19 (4%) were Diabetes Mellitus, and 4 (1%) were Tobacco Habited. Conclusion:- Prevalence of HIV coinfection with MDR-TB was found to be high among TB patients. It would be appropriate to screen all the TB patients for HIV coinfection apart from their sputa examined for drug resistant tuberculosis, especially in HIV high prevalent states
