Pediatric Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis in the pediatric population occurs in the same risk groups as in the adult population ( Ta.b.!§...§.1-1). Primary tuberculosis is usually an asymptomatic disease and generally found during school screening or household screening programs. 4 The classic symptoms of fever, night sweats, and weight loss may be seen in older children, but, in those younger than age 5, presentation may be that of miliary tuberculosis, meningitis, or a pneumonia that does not respond to therapy. 4 The most common radiographic findings include hilar adenopathy, mediastinal lymphadenopathy, or consolidated pneumonia. The most common extrapulmonary presentation is cervical lymphadenitis, but meningitis and bone and joint involvement may also occur.
