The recommended duration of pulmonary tuberculosis therapy is 6 months. For extrapulmonary tuberculosis, treatment duration depends on tuberculosis involvement and HIV status. The objective of this study was to describe the main characteristics of a cohort of extrapulmonary tuberculosis patients, to compare patients with a 6-month treatment to those with more than a 6-month treatment, and to analyze the compliance of medical centres with recommended duration of treatment.
