Whole-genome sequencing identifies nosocomial transmission of extra-pulmonary M. tuberculosis

Abstract: Learning point for clinicians:• Hospital infection control practice reflects the working assumption that extra pulmonary tuberculosis is not considered infectious. We describe how whole-genome sequencing identified the nosocomial transmission of extra-pulmonary Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection on our Infectious Diseases unit in Oxford, UK.• Suppurating wounds in tuberculosis constitute a hazard requiring risk assessment for transmission. We have re-consideration our infection control practices in our hospital in the light of this case to account for the potential of tuberculosis transmission in settings other than just pulmonary disease. We recommend others consider similar measures.
