The article summarizes provisional 2007 data on tuberculosis (TB) cases in the U.S. from the National TB Surviellance System and describes trends since 1993. A total of 13, 293 TB cases were reported in the U.S. in 2007 and the TB rate decreased 4.2% from 2006 to 4.4 cases per 100,000 population. The rate of TB incidence in 2007 was the lowest recorded since national reporting started in 1953.
