ABSTRACT
Tuberculosis as an important health problem of our age causing death of 2 million people each year. The incidence of tuberculosis in the pediatric age group is 1.3 millions/year and it's estimated that 450 000 cases result in death. WHO reports that %15-25 of cases are extrapulmonary tuberculosis patients.
