Abstract

We reviewed the records of all 66 cases of tuberculosis in St. Paul between 1986 and 1989. Two-thirds of the patients were foreign born. Some of these patients experienced problems in adherence to therapy because of cultural barriers. Resistance of the organism to antituberculosis medications was also a significant problem.
