PURPOSE: Recent advances in culture methods such as liquid media (LM) make it easier to isolate Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) from clinical specimens including pleural fluid. However, the diagnostic yield of pleural fluid cultures in tuberculous pleural effusion (TBPE) is still not satisfactory. The aim of this study is to determine whether repeated pleural fluid cultures are associated with increased microbiological diagnostic yield in patients with TBPE.
