Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection poses multiple challenges for treatment, and has a high mortality. MDR-TB coinfection with HIV has been reported in African children. In India, we did not come across any report of HIV and MDRTB coinfection in children, though such coinfection has been reported in adults. A 9-year-old HIV-infected girl requiring antiretroviral therapy (ART) developed MDR-TB and responded to second-line antituberculous therapy. Copyright 2012, NMJI.
