These guidelines have been drawn up to help physicians manage adults with tuberculosis (TB)/HIV coinfection. Recommendations for the treatment of TB in HIV-infected adults are similar to those in HIV-negative adults. However, there are important exceptions which are discussed in this summary. We recommend that coinfected patients are managed by a multidisciplinary team which includes physicians with expertise in the treatment of both TB and HIV infection.
