Abstract
We examined risk factors for tuberculosis recurrence in patients admitted t o a tuberculosis hospital in Florida in 1996 and 1997. Recurrence of tuberc ulosis was not significantly associated with tuberculosis drug levels or HI V status, which indicates that routine drug monitoring may not be beneficia l in general patient management.
