原始语种摘要: Tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis in children still remains a challenge in developing countries. We analyze the performance of Xpert MTB/RIF assay for the diagnosis of pediatric TB under programmatic conditions. We retrospectively analyzed the performance of Xpert MTB/RIF assay from February 2016 to March 2018. A total 2678 samples from TB suspects below 14 years were received in the laboratory and were frontline tested by Xpert MTB/RIF assay according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If sample was sufficient, the smear microscopy and culture were performed as per standard World Health Organization’s guidelines. The smears and cultures were performed in 2178 and 588 samples, respectively. Among 2678 samples, 68 were rejected, Xpert MTB/RIF assay was positive in 357/2610 (13.6%) cases, while...
