Extract

Introduction: Geneva has an incidence of tuberculosis (TB) which is 2.0 x above national average, owing to its cosmopolitan population: 85% of TB cases in Geneva are foreign-born. A retrospective study in our area estimated time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis to be 2.1±3.1 months (range 0-12, n=252); 10% had no symptoms at diagnosis. No clinical or socio-demographic characteristics were predictive of this delay. This study aimed to further explore factors impacting on time to diagnosis in TB.
