Abstract

Few changes have occurred in the management of tuberculosis over the past two decades and many of the recent developments are in the area of diagnostics. The application of these to the pregnant population is not yet established. Two cases recently managed at the Royal Women's Hospital, Melbourne highlight the need for clinicians managing pregnant women to rethink this condition and, with changes in migration and epidemiology, reconsider our screening practice.
