With over 10 million new tuberculosis (TB) cases and 1.6 million deaths, TB is a global health priority. Multidrug-resistant TB is of particular concern to both clinicians and national TB programmes: in 2017, there were 558 000 new rifampicin-resistant cases and 460 000 confirmed multidrug-resistant TB cases. Despite extensive investigation over the years, there is still a great deal to learn about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of TB.

The latest ERS Monograph on Tuberculosis takes an innovative approach to the disease, beginning with a patients’ perspective chapter. The chapters that follow integrate different views on various aspects of TB, covering: epidemiology; strategies for control and elimination; clinical and laboratory diagnosis; imaging; treatment and drugs; TB in children and different patient populations; comorbidities; and clinical cases.

By bringing together global experts in the field, the book’s Guest Editors, Giovanni Battista Migliori, Graham Bothamley, Raquel Duarte and Adrian Rendon, have produced a Monograph that will not only be useful in the clinical practice of a broad range of respiratory physicians, but will be a trusted resource for many years to come.
