Author(s): Rakhi Ludam and Banani Jena
Abstract:Background: Tuberculosis is considered as one of the most reason for death worldwide including India. In India, population, destitution, lack of healthy sustenance, and profoundly blocked climate may help for disease with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The finding and treatment of tuberculosis in not in appropriate with regular strategies. Here we analyzed the location of M. tuberculosis with two traditional strategies.
Materials and Methods: This study was completed to compare and conclude about outcome between the traditional AFB (Acid Fast Bacilli) microscopy and Lowenstein-Jensen (LJ) culture strategy for recognition of Mycobacterium spp. in sputums from patients.
Results: Among 100 examples, 57 (57%) AFB+ results were seen in microscopy with ZN stain. On LJ culture media, 62 (62%) AFB+ detaches were discovered which uncovers that the way of life could be a highest quality level for conclusion of TB.
Conclusion: The AFB smear is fast, modest and explicit test for early finding of TB however Its affectability is low when contrasted with refined strategy in LJ medium which is the gold standard for the confirmation of tuberculosis.
