Abstract

Tuberculosis is the most common opportunistic infection in HIV-seropositive persons. Tuberculosis may occur at any stage of HIV disease but the prevalence of TB increases with the progressive diminution of CD4+ T cell numbers. There is a synergistic relationship between tuberculosis and HIV infection as each accelerates the progression of the other.
