Background: Tuberculosis is the third most important communicable disease in Egypt follows the schistosomiasis. The association between TB and DM has been known for thousands of years, Although the incidence of TB is declining slowly, the burden of diabetes is increasing very rapidly, many studies have been performed to answer about the effect of type 2 DM in clinical, radiological and the outcome of pulmonary tuberculosis, however there is still a huge gap of knowledge about the synergetic effect of the two diseases. The objective was to study the clinical and radiological profile of pulmonary tuberculosis among patients having diabetes mellitus (DM). Methods: The study was conducted at the department of general medicine, in a SAIMS Hospital. The study included pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients with diabetes mellitus and the patients who were smear positive for pulmonary tuberculosis (control group) who met the criteria to participate in the study after a thorough examination. Informed written consent was obtained from all patients before enrolment.
