Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex drug resistance pattern and identification of species causing tuberculosis (TB) in the South and East regions of Cameroon

  Despite advances made in the treatment of tuberculosis (TB), resistance to first line drugs remains a major public health problem, particularly in developing countries. The purpose of this study was to identify the bacterial species causing pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and evaluate resistance to first line drugs in the south and east regions of Cameroon. A total of 372 patients with clinical symptoms of...
