Tuberculosis is a pathology that has accompanied humanity since ancient times and regardless the existence of antibiotics for more than a century and that tuberculosis is a preventable and treatable disease, eradication is a goal not yet achievable. In Chile 40 to 70 cases are diagnosed every week which means physicians are constantly faced to this disease. The diagnosis is suspected based on typical respiratory symptoms and chest radiographs is the first imagenological approach. Several radiographical patterns, with interstitial and parenquimatous involvement are main features of this disorder. These manifestations are related to the patient's age, immunological status, previous exposure and disease stage. Different radiological patterns are shown from patients admitted in our hospital at the first semester of this year

Palavras-chave : Pulmonary tuberculosis; Radiological patterns; X-Ray thorax.
