ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which estimates the risk of adverse events associated with the treatment of latent tuberculosis infection in general population. A historical cohort of residents dispensed treatment for latent tuberculosis in Quebec from 1998 to 2003 was created, in which the patients were observed for 18 months. It highlights that risk of adverse events in hospital admission increases in patients with over 65 years old who receive treatment for the infection of latent tuberculosis.

    The crisis of medical knowledge has been precipitated by the complexity of health care, made up by overuse (30 to 40 percent waste), underuse (best evidence 10 to 20 percent of the time) and misuse (adverse events in 25 to 33 percent of hospital admissions). This complexity sets up the potential...
