Profile of tuberculosis diagnosis abstracted from chart review, Zewditu Memorial Hospital, Ethiopia (January-December, 2008). Out of 238 HIV positive patients charts reviewed, 133 were co-infected with TB. Of these 27 were sputum positive pulmonary TB (PTB), 65 were sputum negative pulmonary TB [PTB (neg)], and 41 were extra pulmonary TB (EPTB). The diagnostic algorithm indicated correct diagnosis were done for all PTB patients, 15 PTB (neg) patients and 36 EPTB patients. Among those diagnosed as PTB (neg), about 29 patients had X-ray done that was suggestive of TB. One hundred and five patients were ruled out for tuberculosis but linkage to IPT was done only for 49(47%) patients. Linkage to CPT of TB/HIV co-infected patients was 80%.
