Abstract

Drug resistance in children with tuberculosis is usually primary (transmitted); however, resistance acquisition during treatment is possible. We describe a child with tuberculosis who acquired drug resistance while receiving directly observed but inadequate first-line therapy and the programmatic and clinical factors that may have contributed to resistance acquisition.
