Abstract

Extensively drug resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB), which is TB resistant to isoniazid and rifampin plus one fluoroquinolone and a second-line injectable drug, represents an obstacle for the treatment and control of TB. This paper presents data on molecular characterization of XDR-TB cases from Valle del Cauca, Colombia.
