    The susceptibility patterns to « classic » tuberculous pleuritis can reflect the circulating strains in a society.

    The records of patients with « classic » tuberculous pleuritis were reviewed retrospectively.

    Eighty-six patients were selected who were hospitalized between January 1990 and April 1994.

    Pleural fluid and tissue samples of patients were cultured in Lowenstein-Jensen medium.

    The isolated strains were subjected to drug susceptibility testing based on the absolute concentration method.

    We obtained 40 positive cultures in 86 patients with « classic » tuberculous pleuritis.

    The resistance rate was 75% to one or more drugs, 27.5% to two drugs, 15% to three drugs, and 10% to four drugs.

    The resistance rates to isoniazid, rifampicin, streptomycin, and ethambutol were 32.5,55,42.5 and 32.5%, respectively.

    The resistance to isoniazid+rifampicin was 7.5%. Our findings indicate that the resistance rates for « classic » tuberculous pleuritis are considerably high, reflecting the currently circulating resistance patterns in our region.

    The best regimen for new tuberculous cases and the appropriate regimens for drug-resistant cases should be designed and conducted by a nationwide institution.
