To identify risk factors in a nosocomial outbreak of multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium bovis (MDRMB) tuberculosis (TB) among HIV-infected patients.
We evaluated the study period (from the first to the last MDRMB smear-positive patients hospitalized in the unit) using a case-control study with three control groups.
Since MDRMB is extremely rare, we assumed that a single strain was responsible for all six cases.
A 19-bed infectious diseases unit in Paris, France.
The index case was an AIDS patient who was hospitalized in September 1989 because of MDRMB TB.
The cases were five HIV-infected patients who developed MDRMB TB between january 1990 and October 1991.
