Abstract

Diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis is challenging in children with HIV infection. We describe the clinical features, diagnostic testing results, tuberculosis and HIV treatment, and clinical outcomes of 57 HIV-infected children diagnosed with tuberculosis at the DarDar Pediatric Program in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. In this cohort, tuberculosis was common, microbiologic studies were frequently negative and mortality was high.
