ZAMBRANO F., Alcides; SALAZAR P., Carlos; FONTECILLA M., Christian  y  MIRANDA M., Eugenio. MILIARY TUBERCULOSIS AN UNCOMMON CAUSE OF NOSOCOMIAL FEVER IN AN IMMUNOCOMPETENT PATIENT. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2004, vol.20, n.3, pp.175-180. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482004000300010.

A progresive decrease of tuberculosis incidence has been shown in the last years in Chile. Presently Chile is considered as a country with a low incidence of tuberculosis (< 20 cases per 105 inhabitants). Miliary tuberculosis is an uncommon form of tuberculosis in immunocompetent patients. Miliary tuberculosis is tipically observed in immunocompromised patients. It is an infrequent cause of nosocomial fever. We report a case of miliary tuberculosis in an immunocompetent patient, that caused intrahospitalary fever, in the course of a long term hospitalization.

Palabras clave : miliary tuberculosis; nosocomial fever.
