“…Among the six patients with resistant isolates, four had made the treatment irregularly, one had diabetes, another was alcoholic and had a prison record; all of them had AFB in the sputum smear, suggesting the presence of tuberculosis bacteria in the pulmonary cavity. These patients lived in the outskirts of the city, without adequate sanitary conditions in their homes, confirming previous findings on the socio-economic context of sick patients with resistant tuberculosis in Brazil, as reported by Kritsky [23]. Finally, we call attention to the unfavorable socio-economic conditions presented by all the patients of this study, which are shared by most of the population of this region.…”

“…Irregular use of the therapeutic scheme has been seen as the main risk factor for the appearance of strains resistant to antituberculous drugs [1,6]. However, other factors have been proposed, including alcoholism, previous treatment history, cavitary pulmonary disease, and more recently as a prevalent condition, the lack of sanitary infrastructure in the homes [23]. Among the six patients with resistant isolates, four had made the treatment irregularly, one had diabetes, another was alcoholic and had a prison record; all of them had AFB in the sputum smear, suggesting the presence of tuberculosis bacteria in the pulmonary cavity.…”

“…A realização inadequada deste esquema terapêutico, mais freqüentemente por não aderência do paciente, vem sendo apontada como um fator de risco importante para o surgimento de cepas resistentes à isoniazida e à rifampicina. No Brasil, trabalhos recentes mostram a precariedade de infraestrutura e o alcoolismo como fatores também determinantes para o desenvolvimento da tuberculose multirresistente (28) . O tratamento correto dos casos, assegurando o seu cumprimento pelos pacientes, pode ser considerado o método mais simples e de menor custo para prevenir o aparecimento de cepas resistentes de M. tuberculosis.…”

“…According to Pant et al (2009), 67% of cases missed medicine at least a few weeks during their previous treatment. Irregularity in taking medicine was shown statistically associated with MDR-TB in the study conducted by Barroso et al (2003), Kritski et al (2003) and Flora et al (2013).…”

“…Several studies have shown that TB contact as strongest determinants of MDR-TB (Kliiman and Attraja, 2009;Balabanova et al, 2012;Lange et al, 2014), but no statistical association was observed between TB contacts and MDR-TB in the present study. The study conducted by Kritski (2003) and Skrahina et al (2013) demonstrated that the smoking habit and alcoholism are strongly associated with MDR-TB. However, our finding infers that the smoking habit and alcoholism have no any co-relation with the development of MDR-TB.…”
