Abstract: The study reviewed 6114 documented records of PTB patients. 1161 (18.9%) commenced treatment. 963 (82.9%) were males and 198 (17.1%) were females. 985 (18.2%) of TB patients reviewed had documented treatment outcomes. 64 (5.8%) of the patient with documented treatment outcomes were HIV seropositive and 932 (95.1%) had a pulmonary infection (Table 1). Of the TB patients reviewed, 903 (91.7%) treatments were successful, and 82 (8.3%) failed. Among the successful treatment outcome, 411 (41.7%) were cured, and 492 (49.9%) completed the treatment. Of the patients with unsuccessful treatment outcomes, 15 (1.5%) lost-to-follow-up, 43 (4.4%) defaulted and 24 (2.4%) died. The highest rate of successful treatment was recorded in females (97.6%), patients with new cases (92.3%) and with pulmonary infections (91.2%)
