Sažetak
In the observed period from 1990-1996, 34 children with newly discovered tuberculosis (Tbc) were hospitalized in the Pediatrics Department of the Clinical Hospital Split. 26 (76%) of them had pulmonary Tbc and 8 (24%) extrapulmonary (2 pleuritis, 2 genitourinary, 2 lymphadenitis, 1 bone and 1 connate Tbc). In 1994 the quadruple increase of Tbc patients was noticed than the year before. There were 35% of patients from Bosnia and Herzegovina and 65% from Split and our District. According to the age they were mostly in the youngest group: 47% from 0-4 years, 12% from 5-9 years and 41% from 10-14 years old. Males were presented by 67%. By preventive cure (contact with Tbc patient, positive PPD test) only 35% of patiens were discovered, mainly parents took their children to the phisician after the first signs of illness. PPD test was valuable diagnosic test. It was negative in 21% of patients, 6-14 mm in 15%, equal and more than 15 mm in 26% and even vesicular in 38%. 25 (76%) children were successfully BCG immunizated. 50% of cases had positive bacteriological culture. During the war this percentage was higher (58%). Mycobacterium tuberculosis was isolated mainly from gastric lavage (one patient had positive smear, two urine, one swab of skin erosion). None was directly positive. Four patients had positive histological findings. Isolated Mycobacterium tuberculosis was resistant to isoniasid in three patients. 29% patients had radiographic manifestations (12 specific parenchymal lesions with lymphadenopathy, 7 only parenchymal lesions, 8 only lymphadenopathy and 2 pleuritis). Conclusion: PPD test, although our Tbc patients were mostly BCG immunated, together with bacteriological culture, radiographic and histological finding, is good diagnostic method in discovering new Tbc patients.
