Brief Summary:
The study assesses patients with cured pulmonary tuberculosis by compulsory notification data of Uberlândia (Minas Gerais state - Brazil) from 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. These patients will be invited by telephonic contact. After eligibility and exclusion criteria evaluation, those included will be assessed in order to know structural and functional repercussions of pulmonary tuberculosis sequelae.

Condition or disease
Pulmonary Tuberculosis

Detailed Description:
This study evaluates structural and functional repercussions of pulmonary tuberculosis sequelae by chest imaging (computed tomography and radiograph), functional respiratory tests (spirometry and six minute walking test) in patients with cured pulmonary tuberculosis.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation between extent of pulmonary disease by computed tomography and lung volumes by spirometry [ Time Frame: At least one year after completion of the tuberculosis treatment ]

    High resolution computed tomography of the lungs will be evaluated by radiologists and the extent of pulmonary abnormalities will be score subjectively.

    Spirometry will permit assessment of lung volumes: forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) and forced vital capacity (FVC).
