dc.description.abstract We hypothesized that the increased burden of TB disease among young females in Cape Town is primarily due to HIV infection in this age group. During 2009, City of Cape Town TB clinics prospectively collected routine notification data on 29,478 new TB cases. The objectives of this analysis were to describe the 2009 Cape Town TB case population by gender, age, and HIV; explore associations between gender, clinical characteristics, and HIV in TB cases; and estimate age-specific TB notification rates by gender and HIV. en_ZA
