Abstract

The
aim of this study is analysis of tuberculosis prevalence in Mures county for a period of three
years (2006-2008). Material and method: We monitored the prevalence of tuberculosis cases
in the Mureº area recorded at Tg. Mureº TB Dispensary, the new cases and readmitted cases,
chronic or abandonment, separately for children and adults, evolving for 2006-2008, data
compared with national registration. Results: From 2006 to 2008, frequency of TB illness in
our area decreased instead of the share of patients with positive results (BK+) wich have
increased, associated with an amplified risk. In our study the assessment during the three years
showed a decrease of the total number of TB cases, instead of increased frequency of new cases
of acute than those of chronic, increased cases of adults against children and cases of failed
healing. Number of new cases of TB in Mureº urban areas, by years, showed the same
decreasing trend for cities monitored, except Tg. Mureº where the number of new cases
recorded in 2008 was higher than in 2006. Conclusion: TB control programs in order to be
effective, must be conducted throughout the all country, to be permanent, to the satisfaction of
the population and to integrated structure of community health.
