    DR-TB does not appear to be more prevalent in HIV-infected patients compared to HIVuninfected patients. However, high mortality rates have been reported in patients coinfected with HIV and DR-TB.

     

    Prompt initiation of appropriate DR-TB therapy (and subsequent initiation of ART) can help to reduce mortality.
