Sažetak
The incidence of childhood tuberculosis as well as the number of children being in contact with persons having tuberculosis has increased in the region of Slavonski Brod during the past decade (1993-2003). The region is located in east Croatia along the border with Bosnia and close to the besieged and destroyed town of Vukovar. It was heavily involved in recent military activities and migrations in Croatia and Bosnia (1991 – 1995). Before the war the population was reasonably well situated, educated and provided with health services. 225 cases of tuberculosis were discovered among 271 suspected cases in a total number of 19, 623 children below 18 years of age admitted during the last decade to the county hospital (1.38%). The number increased from 3 patients with tuberculosis in 1993 to 59 in 2003. Discharge diagnoses were: latent infection 40.1%, specific hilar lymphadenopathy 22.1%, primary lung tuberculosis 18.0%, postprimary tuberculosis 3.0%, contact with infected person but otherwise normal findings 16.9%. The infection was usualy (53.1%) acquired within the family, more often so in younger patients. Bacteriological cultures were positive in 19 of 117 patients with tuberculosis (16.4%). Antituberculosis drug treatment was carried out to completion in all children. Resistance was not encountered. We attribute high incidence of childhood tuberculosis in the region of Slavonski Brod, the second highest incidence in Croatia, to the sequellae of migrations during military activities in Croatia and Bosnia (1991 – 1995) and to the post-war recession.
