Title: Incidence Of Tuberculosis In Necropsies And Biopsies Performed In A General Hospital [incidencia De Tuberculose Em Necropsias E Biopsias Num Hospital Geral]
Author: Billis A.
Abstract: In 1,346 necropsies performed between 1965 and 1971, there were 58 cases of tuberculosis (4.3%). Both sexes were equally affected. The highest incidence occurred during the fourth and fifth decades. In the cases in which tuberculosis was considered to be the 'main disease' the disseminated form predominated, whilst in the cases of 'secondary disease' the pulmonary form was more frequent. In 11,420 biopsies (including surgical resections) between 1965 and 1971, 96 cases of tuberculosis (0.84%), were observed. The highest incidence was among female colored patients, and of these the age groups most affected were those of the third, fourth and fifth decades. The diagnosis of tuberculosis was made, in decreasing order of frequency, in lymph nodes, pleura, peritoneum, synovial membranes and lung tissue. A general hospital, normally does not admit patients with tuberculosis, therefore the incidence of this disease is very high.
