Abstract

In 1990, 25,701 cases of tuberculosis (TB) were reported in the United States, the largest annual increase since 1953. Children younger than 15 years of age accounted for 1596 new cases. The resurgence of TB can largely be contributed to the HIV epidemic. The clinical course, diagnosis, therapy, and prevention of TB in the perinatal period and in infancy are discussed in view of the epidemics of HIV and TB in the adult population.
