The epidemiological and clinical features of all adult tuberculosis (tbc) cases in a Danish county over a 12 year period (82 cases) are presented. Most patients with pulmonary disease have thorax X-ray pictures showing pathological changes. Of the patients who only have extrapulmonary disease, 88% have normal X-ray examinations of the lungs. The patients can be divided into two groups: Danes and foreigners. The Danish patients are older, 81% are over the age of forty. They mostly have pulmonary disease (85%). They often have one or several concomitant diseases. The foreigners are younger, 90% are below the age of forty. They frequently have extrapulmonary disease (35%). They seldom have concomitant diseases.
