ABSTRACT
In Singapore, of 236 patients with probable severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), 2 were coinfected with tuberculosis, a phenomenon not previously reported. The patients' tuberculosis episodes only came to light after full recovery from SARS, when they presented with persistent respiratory symptoms and/or worsening chest radiography findings.
