Epidemiology

In the United States, TB incidence rates have been on the decline since 1992, coinciding with the control of HIV-induced AIDS by antiretroviral therapy. However, TB remains prevalent in certain high-risk groups (i.e. immigrants, IV drug use, homeless persons). Most cases of TB are in people age 15 to 49 years. TB in elderly persons is generally caused by a reactivation of latent infection acquired in the remote past, whereas TB in young children indicates ongoing active transmission in the community. Infection in children is more likely to progress to active TB and disseminated disease. Persons with HIV infection have a disproportionately higher risk for acquiring TB than the general population.
