Pulmonary Tuberculosis is most common form of tuberculosis (TB). The present study was conducted to study the TB cases attending DMC cum DOTS centre at PRH, Loni. It is a retrospective record based study. TB patients information was collected from the record registers at DOTS centre. Out of 611 patients diagnosed, 188 (30%) are from the age group 0- 10 years. Extrapulmonary TB patients were more 222(36%). New smear positive TB cases were 196 (32%). Total 61% patients were categorized in CAT- I, 9% in CAT-II & 30% in CAT III. Treatment completion rate was 93.69%. In view of the high success of DOTS strategy, the same is recommended to be continued.
