Abstract The proportion of multi drug resistant
tuberculo-sis (MDR-TB) among new TB cases is 0.5％ in Japan and 3％ overall the world and with the increasing trend of TB cases that were born in endemic countries of TB, the risk of MDR-TB is increasing in Japan. Drug susceptibility test has been done traditinoally with phenotypic method but the genotypic method is prevailing globally in 2010s and Xpert®
MTB/RIF has been introduced in Japan from 2016. When the case is detected as Rifampicin resistant, we need to start treatment with isoniazid, ethambutol, pyrazinamide, kanamy-cin, ethionamide, cycloserine and para-amino salycilic acid together with rifabutin until we know the drug susceptibility test result consideirng the risk of drug resistance and in order to avoid further acquisition of drug resistance. Globally, 9 months regimen including moxiﬂ oxacin, clofazimine, pyrazin-amide, high dose isoniazid, ethambutol, ethionamide/proth-ionamide is used with good treatment result. In Japan, high cost of bedaquiline and delamanid, non-approval of
beda-quiline and delamanid for non-MDR-TB who cannot be treated with isoniazid and rifampicin with adverse drug reactions, and non-approval of linezolid, clofazimine and moxiﬂ oxacin for tuberculosis are the barriers to the appro-priate prevention and treatment of MDR-TB. Drug resistance to new drugs is appearing globally and we need to consider these resistant cases and avoid further acquisition of drug resitance, and role of surgery will continue in this setting.

MULTI DRUG RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS
結核 第 93 巻 第 11_12号 2018年11_12月 568
Abstract Treatment of tuberculosis is under control of
government in Japan by administrative standards for tuber-culosis care with public expenses payment system and DOT by public health center nurses. But the treatment success rate of initial treatment is lately around 50 percent which is substantially lower than recommended target level. Though high mortality in aged is the utmost cause and failure plus dropout is less than 5％, proportion of patients still on treat-ment at 12 months is around 10％. Long-term treattreat-ment of drug-susceptible tuberculosis may be caused by treatment without PZA, and/or inadequate cope with adverse reaction by general practitioner. Provision of information on standard treatment, more detailed guides of countermeasures to side effects and liaison between general practitioner and TB experts or Regional Tuberculosis Advisory Committees are required.
Treatment of drug-resistant tuberculosis needs different viewpoint. Drug-resistant tuberculosis patients are treated by personalized regimen based on drug-resistant test, but molecular based drug sensitivity tests are not widely used despite being approved for RFP, INH and PZA. Several drugs including moxiﬂ oxacin and linezolid recommended in WHO guidelines for drug-resistant tuberculosis are used by some experts but insufﬁ ciently because they are off-label. Consid-eration is necessary for these laboratory tests and off-label drugs to be available when needed. Delamanid and bedaqui-line are approved for pulmonary MDR-TB and under control of tuberculosis expert through responsible access program by the pharmaceutical company. From September 2014 to
February 2018, 135 cases were eligible to use delamanid and no acquisition of resistance is reported till June 2018. These new drugs are properly used under the control of experts, but its cost can be heavy burden on outpatient who must pay 5％ of medical expenses. Abatement of economic burden for these patients is required.
DOTS is widely and well done lately, but recent issue is the support for foreign born patients who now account for more than 50％ in 20_29yr age group. Language barrier is common, and knowledge of patient’s religious constraints and customs are required. Tuberculosis treatment literacy materials in various languages are recently becoming avail-able but the need for medical interpreter is not fulﬁ lled. Political will is required for implementation of adequate treatment in response to new technology and change of patient background.

Abstract The diagnosis of an acid-fast bacterial infection
should be performed comprehensively, using medical history, physical ﬁ ndings, microbiological examination, and radio-logical ﬁ ndings. However, the ﬁ nal diagnosis of mycobac-terial diseases is traditionally based on a microbiological examination or pathological ﬁ nding, but radiological ﬁ ndings can assist this. In recent years, a pathologic-radiologic cor-relation has been established through the detailed analysis of chest high-resolution CT (HRCT); speciﬁ cally, the radio-logical ﬁ ndings of pulmonary tuberculosis patients compared with their pathological ﬁ ndings. Now, it is possible to estimate pathological ﬁ ndings from HRCT images. In other words, the radiological ﬁ ndings of pulmonary tuberculosis contain fun-damentals of chest radiological diagnosis. Potentially, under-standing the radiological ﬁ ndings of pulmonary tuberculosis will, in turn, deepen the entire understanding of chest imag-ing diagnoses. Indeed, to learn more about mycobacterial lung diseases, we should ﬁ rst understand the clinical features of the non-tuberculous mycobacteria often experienced in general clinical practice. Then, the clinical experiences of the National Hospital Organization will be useful to examine
pulmonary tuberculosis cases, intensively. By strengthening the National Hospital Organization Hospitals function as training hospitals, our knowledge of tuberculosis and other mycobacterial lung diseases will deepen.

EDUCATION FOR TUBERCULOSIS AND NON-TUBERCULOUS
― Comparison between Lung Tuberculosis and Non-Tuberculous Mycobacterial Lung Diseases ― Jiro FUJITA
Abstract [Objective] The purpose of this study was to compare the negative conversion rate between
intraoperative specimens of spinal tuberculosis and sputum specimens of pulmonary tuberculosis after 1 month of treatment with a standard anti-tuberculosis drug regimen. [Patients and Methods] We retrospectively reviewed the records of 111 patients who underwent anterior spinal fusion for spinal tuberculosis. All patients received anti-tuberculosis drug using a standard regimen with either INH, RFP, PZA, EB or SM (Method A) or a standard regimen with INH, RFP, EB or SM (Method B). Overall, 76 patients were treated with Method A and 35 patients were treated with Method B. Forty-ﬁ ve out of the 111 patients had intrathoracic lesions: 40 of these patients were smear-positive and 5 were smear-negative as well as PCR-positive. Nineteen patients were classiﬁ ed as having extra-pulmonary lesions such as miliary tuberculosis or tuberculous pleuritis. Forty-seven out of the 111 patients did not have intrathoracic lesions. All the patients underwent surgery 1 month after the initiation of the anti-tuberculous treatment. The negative conversion rate was compared between the intraoperative specimens of spinal tuberculosis and sputum specimens of the 40 smear-positive patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. [Results] The negative conversion rate of intraoperative specimens after 1-month treatment for spinal tuberculosis was 7.2％ (Method A: 10.5％, Method B: 0％). The negative conversion rates of the sputum specimens were 82.5％ (Method A: 78.2％, Method B: 88.2％) at 1 month, 92.5％ (Method A: 87.0％, Method B: 100％) at 2 months, and 97.5％ (Method A: 95.7％, Method B: 100％) at 3 months after treatment initiation. A comparison of the negative conversion rates of the sputum specimen at 1 month and the intraoperative specimen at the same period showed a signiﬁ cant difference (p＜0.01). [Conclusion] The negative conversion rate for intraoperative specimen in patients with spinal tuberculosis after 1 month of standard treatment was less than that of pulmonary tuberculosis at that time period.

MYCOBACTERIAL EXAMINATION OF INTRAOPERATIVE SPECIMENS
AFTER A 1-MONTH STANDARD TREATMENT REGIMEN
IN PATIENTS WITH SPINAL TUBERCULOSIS
Following the introduction of rifampicin (RFP), short-course chemotherapy was extensively developed in the 1970s.1) A
four-drug regimen including RFP and pyrazinamide (PZA) was found to be especially effective with considerably low relapse rates. Throughout the 1980s, the regimen was used worldwide (including Japan) and became standard chemo-therapy.2) 3) Currently, a standard four-drug regimen exists
and consists of RFP, PZA, isoniazid (INH), and ethambutol (EB) or streptomycin (SM). Patients take RFP, PZA, INH, and EB or SM in the ﬁ rst 2 months followed by INH and RFP in the next 4 months (Method A). The standard three-drug regimen consists of INH, RFP and EB or SM, which are
taken in the ﬁ rst 2 months followed by INH and RFP only in the next 7 months (Method B). Previous studies have shown satisfactory results in the use of these regimens in the treatment of spinal tuberculosis.4) 5) However, the duration of treatment
administration is still controversial since there is no clear deﬁ nition of healing spinal tuberculosis.6) One of the difﬁ
cul-ties in assessing spinal tuberculosis activity may be due to issues related to mycobacterial assessment. Unless a spinal biopsy is performed while a patient is undergoing treatment, mycobacterial activity cannot be assessed. However, unlike the sputum test for pulmonary tuberculosis, the spinal biopsy is not a practical procedure to perform periodically. On the other hand, during surgical treatment for spinal tuberculosis for a patient who has initiated treatment, intraoperative

RETROSPECTIVE ANALYSIS OF TREATMENT
OF LATENT TUBERCULOSIS INFECTION IN JAPAN,
SEVERE LIVER DYSFUNCTION DURING ISONIAZID TREATMENT
Abstract [Objectives] Although the prevalence of tuberculosis has been decreasing in Japan, the prevalence
of miliary tuberculosis (TB) has been gradually increasing. Therefore, it would be important that we know prognostic factors for miliary TB to provide suitable treatment and general management. To identify prog-nostic factors, we retrospectively studied 106 cases of miliary TB in our hospital. [Methods] We reviewed the medical records of 106 patients who had been diagnosed with miliary TB and undergone in-hospital treat-ment at our medical institution between April 2004 and March 2013. We conducted retrospective compar-ative analyses of age, sex, smoking history, complications, history of immunosuppressant use, presence or absence of hypoxemia, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (PS), blood cultures, blood tests, administration of rifampicin (RFP) and isoniazid (INH), and time delay from symptom presentation to diagnosis between the patients who survived and were discharged (survivor group) and those who died in hospital (non-survivor group). In addition, we examined factors which contributed to longer survival period. [Results] The patients in the non-survivor group (n＝41) were older and less nourished and had poorer oxygenation, poorer PS, and smaller number of peripheral blood lymphocyte count than the patients in the survivor group (n＝65). And the rate of administration of RFP in the non-survivor group was lower than that in the survivor group. Administration of RFP was related to the longer survival time in the non-survivor group. [Conclusions] Nutritional status, oxygenation, PS, peripheral blood lymphocyte count, and RFP administration were identiﬁ ed as prognostic factors of miliary TB. Administration of RFP appeared to be most important for the survival.

INVESTIGATION OF POTENTIAL PROGNOSTIC FACTORS
FOR THE INCREASINGLY PREVALENT
MILIARY TUBERCULOSIS IN JAPAN
Hirotoshi MATSUI, and1
Miliary tuberculosis is a hematogenously disseminated type of tuberculosis, which involves active tuberculosis lesions identiﬁ ed bacteriologically or pathologically in at least two organs and diffuse nodular satellite lesions equivalent or close in size to grains of millet1). The most frequently affected
organs are the lung, liver, and spleen, but the kidney, bone marrow, brain, and other organs in any part of the body can be affected. Because the disease can affect multiple organs, delayed diagnosis can be fatal; thus, early detection is critical. However, early diagnosis is often difﬁ cult because symptoms vary considerably depending on the organs affected.
Although the prevalence of tuberculosis has been decreasing
in Japan, the prevalence of miliary tuberculosis has been gradually increasing (Fig. 1). In the 2016 statistics, 633 cases of miliary tuberculosis were registered in Japan, which corresponds to 0.50 incidences per 100,000 people and accounts for 15.8％ of extrapulmonary tuberculosis cases2).
In other countries, of all patients with tuberculosis, 1.5％ and 2.7％ were estimated to have miliary tuberculosis in the US and in the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/ EEA), respectively3) 4). It appears that miliary tuberculosis
may be found in a certain population at the present time when prevalence rate of tuberculosis is decreasing.
In spite of the critical importance of identifying prognostic factors (factors related to in-hospital death) for providing appropriate treatment and general care to the patients with

Abstract [Objectives] The aim of this study was to identify
the erm genes conferring the resistance variation in clinical non-photochromogenic rapidly growing mycobacterium (NPRGM) isolates identiﬁ ed Mycolicibacterium fortuitum by DDH myco-bacteria kit.
[Material] All NPRGM isolates were collected from 14 consecutive bronchiectasis patients at the National Hospital Organization Kinki-chuo Chest Medical Center, Osaka, Japan, between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2017.
[Methods] All of isolates were conﬁ rmed using rpoB,
hsp 65, and 16S_23S ITS region gene sequencing. Also, these isolates were evaluated the presence of erm genes and determined the minimum inhibitory concentration to clarith-romycin according to CLSI 2011 M24_A2.
[Results] The presence of erm consensus regions among the 13 clinical isolates were determined, and heterogeneous
erm genes including erm (39) and erm (40) presented in them which belonged to ﬁ ve species of NPRGM. However, the ﬁ nding that the inducible resistance of NPRGM by erm methylases could not be conﬁ rmed by conventional susceptible
[Discussion] It therefore appears necessary to develop more proper inducible resistant evaluation to clarithromycin of NPRGM and accurate identiﬁ cation for selecting appro-priate antimicrobial therapies.

Abstract [Objective] We investigated the actual condition,
the efﬁ cacy, and the safety of use of sitaﬂ oxacin (STFX) for
Mycobacterium avium complex pulmonary disease (MAC-PD).
[Materials and Methods] Eighty nine patients who were newly prescribed STFX for MAC-PD were retrospectively investigated about reasons for prescribing STFX, efﬁ cacy as an alternative drug for standard therapeutic agents, efﬁ cacy of add-on therapy for refractory cases, and adverse events. [Results] STFX were the most frequently prescribed in 54 patients (61％) as an alternative drug for standard therapeutic agents. Of the 46 patients who were able to follow up, 21 patients completed treatment. In refractory cases, no cases achieve negative sputum conversion, although symptom improvement was observed in 4 cases and radiological improvement was conﬁ rmed in 3 cases. Adverse events of STFX were seen in 50 (56％) of 89 patients. Diarrhea was the most common adverse event (22％). Twenty-three patients
were discontinued due to adverse events.
[Conclusion] STFX for MAC-PD shows a certain effect as an alternative drug, and add-on therapy for refractory cases. However, there was a limit to the efﬁ cacy, and many adverse events were seen.

Abstract An 82-year-old man was diagnosed with active pulmonary tuberculosis and tuberculous
lymph-adenitis because Mycobacterium tuberculosis was detected in both the sputum and pus collected from the incision site in the neck. He was treated with a combination of isoniazid, rifampicin, and ethambutol. How-ever, even after 2 months of treatment, the lymphadenopathy worsened with new lesions arising. The histo-pathological examination of cervical lymph nodes revealed T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He tested positive for anti-human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) antibody. The diagnosis of adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATL) lymphoma type was made. He was treated with supportive care alone because of his poor performance status. Approximately 2 months later he died. HTLV-1 infection, which underlies ATL, might have contributed to the development of tuberculosis in this case as HTLV-1 infection is associated with immunosuppression. When a patient does not improve after treatments, physicians should perform histological examination to avoid making a premature diagnosis and overlooking underlying serious diseases.

Tuberculosis is one of the most prevalent infectious diseases in the world causing substantial morbidity and mortality1).
It should be noted that tuberculosis can develop secondary to immunosuppression and human immunodeﬁ ciency virus infection is one of the most important immunosuppressive diseases which can lead to the development of tuberculosis2).
In addition, human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) infection may be an underrated important condition which underlies tuberculosis3). Here, we present a patient who was
initially diagnosed with tuberculous lymphadenitis, but was revealed to concomitantly have adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATL). There may be a relationship between the two diseases, as HTLV-1 infection, which underlies ATL, is associated with immunosuppression3).
An 82-year-old man was referred to our hospital owing to suspected active pulmonary tuberculosis. Approximately 4 months before the hospitalization, nurses in the day care center noticed the enlargement of his neck. One month later, the neck enlargement worsened. The neck lesion was incised
to drain pus for the preliminary diagnosis of purulent lymph-adenitis. However, his neck lesion did not improve after the incision and drainage, and neck computed tomography (CT) revealed multiple nodular opaciﬁ cations in both the upper lungs in addition to multiple cervical lymphadenopathy. His medical history was remarkable for gastric cancer, which was treated by performing distal gastrectomy and cholecystectomy. In addition, he developed cerebral infarction that left him with permanent right hemiplegia and motor aphasia, and since then, he had been almost conﬁ ned to bed. He had smoked 1 pack of cigarettes per day for approximately 30 years.
On referral, CT revealed a large low-density mass measuring approximately 6×5×3 centimeters in the left neck (Fig. 1) and multiple nodular opacities in both upper lungs (Fig. 2). No signiﬁ cant lymphadenopathy was detected elsewhere in the initial scan, which was not contrasted. Both the sputum and pus collected from the incision site in the neck were smear-positive for acid-fast bacilli and positive for the loop-mediated isothermal ampliﬁ cation (LAMP) assay. The patient was immediately admitted in our hospital with the diagnosis of active pulmonary tuberculosis and tuberculous lymphadenitis. On admission, he was afebrile and appeared well. His blood pressure was 148/74 mmHg and pulse was

Abstract An initial aggravation after anti-tuberculosis
che-motherapy is characterized as a paradoxical reaction, and a progressive tuberculoma is recognized as one of the initial aggravations.
A patient aged 37 years, female without history of tuber-culosis and immunosuppressive diseases visited our clinic due to persistent fever and non-productive coughing. She was admitted due to bilateral pleural effusions. There was no evidence of tuberculosis antigens from sputum and pleu-ral effusions. Bilatepleu-ral tuberculous pleurisy was suspected, because of high levels of adenosine deaminase of both pleural effusions (right 73.2 IU/L and left 77.5 IU/L) and positive results in QuantiFERON®-GIT (ESAT-6 : 1.03 IU/mL). She
was discharged after interventions of anti-tuberculosis che-motherapy with pyrazinamide, rifampicin, isoniazid and ethambutol.
However, she was re-admitted due to new symptoms of right chest discomfort and abnormal shadows at right pleura on chest x-ray ﬁ ndings one month after the interventions. Diagnosis of right progressive chest and abdominal tuber-culoma was made from the detections of tuberculosis DNA by polymerase chain reaction techniques from punctured ﬂ
u-ids of the abdominal shadows. The tuberculoma disappeared 1 year and 4 months after consolidated anti-tuberculosis chemotherapy. This case was, here, presented as a diagnostic difﬁ culty that development to pleural and peritoneal tuber-culoma one month after initiation anti-tuberculosis chemo-therapy on bilateral tuberculous pleurisy might be considered as paradoxical reactions, which was different from progres-sive diseases.
