Abstract

ABSTRACT

We report two cases of disseminated multidrug-resistant tuberculosis with meningitis in HIV-positive patients, who were both recent emigrants from sub-Saharan Africa. Our two cases highlight new challenges in the care of HIV and tuberculosis coinfection including early diagnosis and treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis that is spreading.
