Abstract: Extensively drug resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) has become a new threat for the control of TB in many countries including India. Its prevalence is not known in India as there is no nation-wide surveillance. However, there have been some reports from various hospitals in the country. We have reviewed the studies/information available in the public domain and found data from 10 tertiary care centres in 9 cities in India.
