Tuberculosis (TB) is the second most common infectious illness cause of mortality after HIV. This has increased interest in identifying and managing exposed patients, whether they are infected or have a clinical variation. Children are more likely to have negative cultures and tuberculin skin test results, equivocal chest X-ray findings, and unusual clinical symptoms than adults. Young children are at greater risk of infection becoming active illness. Pediatricians must utilize unique diagnostic strategies for children.
