Early detection of liver damage in Mexican patients with chronic liver disease

Treatment of tuberculosis infection complicated with liver transplant

in China is approximately 1.52%–2.29% [ 2 , 3 , 4 ]. The incidence varies with the type of organ transplant [ 1 , 5 ] with approximately 0.47%–2.3% among patients who have undergone a liver transplant [ 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 ]. Interactions exist between immunosuppressant and anti-TB drugs because the diagnosis and treatment of TB complications is difficult with liver transplant, wherein the drug resistance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis increases as the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of TB face many problems. 1 Pathogenesis and prognosis The risk of TB in
