INTRODUCTION: Quantiferon-TB Gold (QFT-G) testing is used to screen populations for latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) since it requires only one patient visit (1). In low risk populations, false positive results can occur and can only be detected using a second screen (2). When the QFT-G results are unclear in immunocompetent subjects, PPD testing can help clarify MTB exposures.
