SESSION TITLE: Tuberculosis

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PURPOSE: Published literature from the 1950s to date suggests an increased prevalence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) infections. Though the exact prevalence is unknown, VTE has been described in 3-4% of patients with TB. Venous thromboembolic disease is potentially life threatening and the morbidity and mortality from VTE in TB patients is unknown. The mechanism of action is presumed to be due to the up-regulation of cytokine production, prothrombotic state of endothelial cells, and venous compression by lymph nodes. We evaluate a specific population of active TB patients at the inpatient TB ward at Olive View - UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California to determine the percentage of TB patients with a concomitant diagnosis of VTE, specifically pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT).
