Abstract

A phlebotomist with nosocomially acquired human immunodeficiency virus infection developed tuberculosis 10 months after exposure to multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis during a nosocomial outbreak. Healthcare workers with immunosuppression are at increased risk of tuberculosis if infected and, if exposed, should be considered for preventive therapy regardless of tuberculin skin-test status
