SASSAKI, Cinthia Midori et al. Tempo de tratamento de pacientes inscritos no Programa de Controle da Tuberculose. Ribeirão Preto-SP (1998-1999). Bol. Pneumol. Sanit. [online]. 2002, vol.10, n.2, pp.27-34. ISSN 0103-460X.

This is a descriptive epidemiological study which aims at analyzing the duration of treatment of tuberculosis patients enrolled in the Tuberculosis Control Program (TCP) in a health service in the city of Ribeirão Preto-SP in 1998 and 1999. Data were obtained through records books and charts. The Epi-Info software, version 6.04d, was used for data recording, tabulation and analysis. It was observed that of the 140 patients under study, 105 (75%) were cured, 20 (14.29%) were transferred, 05 (3.57%) had an alteration in their diagnoses, 05 (3.57%) quit treatment and 05 (3.57%) passed away. Concerning cure, 39.05% were cured in up to six months; 39.05% in a period of 6.1 to 9 months; 20% in more than 9 months and 1.9% were ignored. It was identified that the history of previous treatment, pathological intercurrences, AIDS and alcoholism contributed to not following therapy adequately, which extended the time of treatment among cured individuals. Concerning the time of treatment of patients who did not develop to cure, 09 (25.71%) were not cured after 6 months of treatment (03 dropouts; 03 deaths; 02 diagnosis alterations and 01 transfer). It can be observed that intercurrences may occur during treatment, which causes deviances such as the non-adherence to the therapeutic plan and increase in the treatment period, risks of quitting and even death. Failures in the completion of charts and report forms were distinguished in this study
