Abstract

The treatment of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis is crucial element of tuberculosis control in the society. The reasons why patients with culture positive pulmonary tuberculosis (CPPTB) were not treated were assessed. The records of patients registered in the microbiological laboratories in Warsaw, Gdansk and Siedlce in 1995 and 2000 were analysed . There were found 373 patients with CPPTB in 1995 and 335 in 2000. In 11,5% of cases and in 13,4% respectively the treatment was not introduced. 37 patients in 1995 and 35 in 2000 were not treated because they were never registered in dispensary and never showed up there.
