To the Editor:

We thank Dr Dutt for his interest in our study and insightful comments. In Ontario, Canada, the incidence and prevalence of TB is relatively low, and, therefore, it was not examined as a factor associated with pulmonary function testing in our study.1 We appreciate how this would be a much greater problem in developing countries with a higher prevalence of TB and support Dr Dutt’s call for a consensus statement regarding the use of spirometry in TB-prevalent countries.
