Application Note: Down to the ground zero: Perspective from tissue diagnosis in neurological TB
7 June 2022

Central nervous system tuberculosis (CNS-TB), a severe form of extrapulmonary TB, presents with nonspecific symptoms leading to delayed diagnosis and increased morbidity. This study, presented at the SelectScience® Virtual Microbiology and Infectious Disease Summit 2022, compares different modalities of diagnosis of CNS-TB [Multiplex real-time PCR/ GeneXpert, TB culture, Ziehl-Neelsen staining (Z-N staining), and histopathology].
