Consequently the most recent epidemiological aspects are described concerning the planetary map of the disease, which obliges, in some third world countries at higher incidence and prevalence, to the so-called DOT, or "directly observed therapy. Together with such aspects, the recent evolution of the (often multi-drug) resistances and the growing importance of the most reasonable therapeutic schemes of multi-drug associations, as well as the chemioprophylaxis, the extrapulmonary tuberculosis, the failures of treatment and the relapses are also treated.
