Abstract

Treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is difficult and has been associated rarely with severe side effects. We report the nosocomial transmission of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis to a health-care worker who was seronegative for HIV infection. She died because of liver failure associated with treatment for active multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.
