ABSTRACT

A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 898 contacts of patients with tuberculosis, belonging to Camagüey municipality, in Camagüey was carried out from 2008 to 2009, in order to evaluate the follow-up to their contacts and to identify the main weaknesses of this process. The follow-up prescription of the contacts with lung tuberculosis and positive bacilloscopy was used, which were initially investigated and treated with chemotherapy; only in 35 of them the investigation was not completed according to the guidelines of the National Program of Tuberculosis Control; therefore, the implementation of the mentioned guidelines was verified for the follow-up of the contacts of positive cases with this affection, which was more rigorous in the early and active working ages (25-54 years). During the trial weaknesses were not observed; however, the population should be sensitized so that they fulfil the corresponding examinations.


Key words: lung tuberculosis, quality control, follow-up study.
