Abstract
Tuberculosis (TB) is a major health problem in our country. Though TB is highly prevalent in women of childbearing age, only few cases of congenital tuberculosis (TB) have been reported. We present a 21-day old child with congenital drug-resistant (DR) TB who was detected to have rifampicin resistance (RR) mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) on GeneXpert. Subsequently on screening the mother, she was detected to have pulmonary TB with sputum showing RR-MTB on GeneXpert.
