Figure 1: Annual trend of TB case notification rate per 100,000 population, overall and among subcategories, Puducherry, India (2010–2017). TB: tuberculosis; PTB: pulmonary tuberculosis; EPTB: extrapulmonary TB; Xpert: cartridge-based nucleic acid amplification test; LPA: line probe assay; HIV: human immunodeficiency virus; MDR/RR-TB: multidrug resistant/rifamipicin-resitant TB. *Targeted group included HIV-associated TB, EPTB, pediatric TB, sputum-negative chest radiograph–positive TB. LPA continued to be used for drug susceptibility testing among patients with presumptive MDR-TB (previously treated TB, pulmonary TB who is a contact of confirmed MDR-TB, follow-up smear-positive during TB treatment)
