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
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.
