    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A 3-month-old asymptomatic infant presented with bilateral extensive consolidation of the lungs, which was diagnosed as pulmonary tuberculosis. Evaluation of the baby for tuberculosis was initiated because of a history of contact with a known tuberculosis patient. This case is interesting because the baby rarely showed symptoms during the whole course of the disease.
