Introduction

This article provides supplementary data for the surveillance report in this issue entitled: Tuberculosis in Canada, 2016.Footnote 1

National case definitions for confirmed cases of tuberculosis and new and re-treatment casesFootnote 2

Confirmed case

Laboratory confirmed case

Cases with Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex demonstrated on culture, specifically M. tuberculosis, M. africanum, M. canetti, M. caprae, M. microti, M. pinnipedii or M. bovis (excluding M. bovis BCG strain).

Clinically confirmed case

In the absence of culture proof, cases clinically compatible with active tuberculosis (TB) that have, for example:

  1. chest x-ray changes compatible with active tuberculosis;
  2. active nonrespiratory tuberculosis (meningeal, bone, kidney, peripheral lymph nodes, etc.);
  3. pathologic or post-mortem evidence of active tuberculosis;
  4. favourable response to therapeutic trial of antituberculosis drugs.

New and re-treatment cases of tuberculosis

New case

No documented evidence or adequate history of previously active tuberculosis.

Re-treatment case

  1. Documented evidence or adequate history of previously active TB which was declared cured or treatment completed by current standards
  2. At least six months have passed since the last day of previous treatment
  3. Diagnosed with a subsequent episode of TB which meets the active TB case definition

OR

  1. Documented evidence or adequate history of previously active TB which cannot be declared cured or treatment completed by current standards
  2. Inactive for six months or longer after the last day of previous treatment
  3. Diagnosed with a subsequent episode of TB which meets the active TB case definition
