Screening for Tuberculosis Infection

Release Date: 1996

The USPSTF recognizes the importance of targeted screening for tuberculosis. However, the USPSTF does not wish to duplicate the work of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in this area and will not update its 1996 recommendations. 

The CDC publishes recommendations on screening for tuberculosis. The methods used by the CDC to review evidence may differ from the methods of the USPSTF. For the CDC's current recommendations on screening for tuberculosis, please refer to the CDC Web site at http://www.cdcnpin.org/scripts/tb/cdc.asp. Exit Disclaimer
