    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To identify risk factors in a nosocomial outbreak of multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium bovis (MDRMB) tuberculosis (TB) among HIV-infected patients.

    Design

    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.

    Setting

    A 19-bed infectious diseases unit in Paris, France.

    Patients

    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.
