Abstract

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB), which only a few years ago was thought to be under control and soon to be eliminated, has resurfaced as a real threat in the home and community setting. This article discusses TB symptoms, therapies (including a discussion of the drug-resistant forms of TB), prevention and control strategies, and the role of the home healthcare nurse in the surveillance for and management of TB.
