Abstract

To determine patient characteristics associated with isoniazid resistance in cases of tuberculous meningitis, we conducted a cross-sectional study by using data from the US National Tuberculosis Surveillance System during 1993-2005. Foreign-born patients were more likely to be infected with an isoniazid-resistant strain.
