Join the Department of Tropical Medicine for this seminar, "Post Tuberculosis Lung Disease: New Name for an Old Foe." Tuberculosis (TB) eradication efforts have lost ground during the COVID-19 pandemic, potentiating spread. Even with adequate treatment of TB, up to half of all persons with pulmonary TB develop chronic respiratory abnormality defined as post-TB lung disease (PTLD). The underlying mechanisms of PTLD remain unclear. Dr. Zifodya will outline current literature on PTLD and discuss his research in Nairobi, Kenya to define trajectory and risks for this disease.
