Objective To evaluate the imaging features of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis by collecting multidrug-resistant tuberculosis verified by test of drug-sensitivity,which defined as resistance to three anti-tuberculosis drugs Methods Fifty-one cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis were categorized as group of observed,and 46 cases of drug sensitive tuberculosis were categorized as control Cultures were positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis in all cases with no other illness such as diabetes mellitus All patients had chest radiographs available for review,while 64 cases had tomography and 30 cases had CT during the same time All images were analyzed by three of the radiologists,disagreement among them was discussed and a consensus was reached Results There was no difference in the distribution of lesions between the multidrug-resistant tuberculosis group and control group However,the radiological findings in the multidrug-resistant tuberculosis group were significantly more common than in control group,such as multiple nodules (10 cases),disseminated foci (23 cases),cavity (9 cases),and complications (10 cases). Comparing the dynamic cases,deteriorating cases were more commonly seen in observed group than in control group,while improved cases were less in observed group than in control group Conclusion Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is the most serious tuberculosis,which is characterized with significant activity,more disseminated foci,cavity,and complications The lesion deteriorated while correct anti-tuberculosis treatment is applied
