Tuberculosis sensitivityat active tuberculosis forms by theMantoux test 2TEand Diaskintest®


The effectiveness of the Diaskintest for detecting tuberculosis in 61 children and young people in the Children's Hospital of Samara city was studied. The most frequent forms of tuberculosis were intrathoracic lymph node tuberculosis (39, 3%) and infiltrative tuberculosis (27,9%).
The Diaskintest® has shown its high diagnostic importance when dealing with local forms of active tuberculosis (88,5%). The negative test result by Diaskintest® does not exclude presence of tuberculosis. The Mantoux test remains important diagnostic test for detecting tuberculosis.
