PURPOSE: Tuberculosis and psychiatric diseases share common risk factors (poverty, homelessness, HIV positive serology, alcohol/substance abuse) leading to frequent comorbidity. Begining with 2002, the incidence of TB in Romania is continuously decreasing: 142.2% 000-2002, 105.5% 000-2008, 72.9% 000 - 2013, but Romania is one of the european contry with very high incidence. The aim of our study was to establish the impact of psihiatrical diseases between TB cases in Romania among 2010 - 2013 and also to follow the evolution of these cases compared by the TB cases in general population.
