Abstract: Tuberculosis (TB) is a leading cause of death worldwide. Unsuccessful sputum culture conversion at month 2 of treatment has been proposed as risk factor for treatment failure and relapse. Several biomarkers have been evaluated with culture conversion. Experimental data suggest a role for anemia and iron in the course of TB infection. However, there is limited evidence on the potential effects of anemia of inflammation and iron deficiency or iron overload on the TB treatment.
