tb in children
TB in Children
  • WHO estimate of TB in children
    • 1.3 million annual cases
    • 450,000 deaths
  • 15% of TB in low-income countries children vs. 6% in United States
making the decision to test for tb

MAKING THE DECISION TO TEST FOR TB

The Initial “Test” for TB Infection is the History

who should be tested
Who Should be Tested?
  • Those at epidemiological increased risk of having TB infection
  • Those at increased individual risk of developing TB disease if infected
  • ONLY test if you are going to treat the patient – a decision to test is a decision to treat

Epidemiologically-Defined Groups

with HIGH Prevalence of Tuberculosis Infection

  • Immigrants from areas of world with a high incidence of TB
  • Homeless persons, and other low income groups with poor access to health care
  • Elderly persons
  • Residents and employees in congregate living facilities serving persons at high risk of TB (correctional institutions, homeless shelters, health care facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, AIDS housing)
underlying medical conditions which increase risk for progression to active tb disease
Underlying Medical Conditions Which Increase Risk for Progression to Active TB Disease
  • HIV infection
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Immunosuppressive Rx
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Malignancy
  • TNF Alpha blocker therapy
  • Transplant recipients
  • > 15 mg Prednisone/day
  • Silicosis

induration of 5mm considered a positive tst
Induration of >5mm Considered a Positive TST
  • HIV positive persons
  • Recent contacts of TB cases
  • Fibrotic Changes on CXR c/w old (not treated) TB
  • Patients with organ transplants or other immunosuppression
  • Prednisone therapy 15 mg/day > 1 month
induration of 10mm considered a positive tst
Induration of >10mm Considered a Positive TST
  • Recent arrivals (<5 yrs) high prevalence countries
  • Intravenous Drug Users
  • Residents/employees - high-risk congregate facilities (health care, prisons, shelters, etc.)
induration of 15mm considered a positive tst
Induration of >15mm Considered a Positive TST
  • TB lab personnel
  • Persons with “high-risk” medical conditions
  • Children <4 yrs or exposed to adults at risk
interferon gamma release assays
Interferon Gamma Release Assays
  • Quantiferon – measure of interferon gamma in supernatant, currently at third generation test – Quantiferon Gold In-tube
  • Elispot – measure of individual T-cells that produce interferon gamma.
before treatment of ltbi exclude active tuberculosis
Before Treatment of LTBI: Exclude Active Tuberculosis
  • Absence of symptoms
  • Negative CXR
  • Negative medical evaluation
  • Order and wait for sputum culture if

any question

chest radiograph pearls
Chest Radiograph “Pearls”
  • Hilar nodes, pleural disease – extrapulmonary, few bacteria
  • Cavitary disease – many bacteria
  • Parenchymal scars – NOT active, only needs preventive therapy (LTBI) IF scar is > 2.5 cm
  • Calcified node is functionally like a normal chest radiograph (very very few live AFB)

Childhood TB diagnosed by:

  • Combination of :
    • Contact with infectious adult case
    • Symptoms and signs
    • Positive tuberculin skin test
    • Suspicious CXR or CT/MRI
    • Bacteriological confirmation
    • Serology?
treatment of ltbi
Treatment of LTBI
  • Treatment regimens:
    • INH x 9 months
    • Alternative: Rifampin 600mg daily x 4 months for adults, 6 months for children and HIV+
    • Possible:
      • INH & Rifampin x 3 to 4 months
      • INH, Rifampin, EMB & PZA x 2 months
    • No longer used: Rifampin/PZA x 2 months
    • New? Rifapentine & INH weekly x 12 weeks

United States

Over 100,000 participants

Household contacts (6), Entire communities (3), Inactive

pulmonary lesions (5), Children with primary TB (2), School

children (1) Railway workers (1), Mentally ill patients (1)

how much isoniazid is needed for the prevention of tuberculosis
How Much Isoniazid Is Needed for the Prevention of Tuberculosis?
  • Longer durations of therapy corresponded to lower TB rates among those who took 0-9 mo
  • No extra increase in protection among those who took >9 months

iuatld study of inh therapy for ltbi
IUATLD Study of INH Therapy for LTBI
  • Reduction in culture positive TB at 5 years all participants
    • 6 months therapy 65%
    • 12 months therapy 75%
  • Reduction in culture positive TB at 5 years in the group of completer-compliers (took > 80% of doses):
    • 6 months therapy 69%
    • 12 months therapy 93%

Contacts Of INH Resistant TB

  • Four month regimen daily Rifampin for adults
  • Six month regimen daily Rifampin for HIV infected
  • Six month regimen daily Rifampin for children
treatment of latent tb infection in special situations
Treatment of Latent TB Infection in Special Situations
  • For children and adolescents (<18 years old):
    • Isoniazid for 9 months
  • For pregnant women:
    • Isoniazid for 9 or 6 months - may defer except for HIV- infected women and those recently infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  • For persons exposed to isoniazid resistant TB:
    • Rifampin for 4 months
  • For persons likely infected with multidrug-resistant TB:
    • Pyrazinamide and ethambutol, or pyrazinamide and
    • quinolone for 6-12 months (i.e., at least 2 drugs to which the organism is susceptible)
tb and bcg vaccination
TB and BCG Vaccination
  • Efficacy for adult pulmonary TB 0-80% in randomized clinical trials
  • Best efficacy against serious childhood disease
    • 64% protection against TB meningitis
    • 78% protection effect against disseminated TB
  • BCG important for young children, inadequate as single strategy
