Abstract

In 2000, 548 cases of tuberculosis (TB) caused by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex were notified in Denmark, 199 (36%) in Danes and 349 (64%) in immigrants (1). This constitutes a slight increase on the 536 cases (31% in Danes and 69% in immigrants) in 1999. The overall incidence in 2000 was 10.3 per 100 000, 10.1/100 000 in 1999 and 10.0/100 000 in 1998. The incidence was 4.0/100 000 in Danes and 92.3/100 000 in immigrants in 2000 compared with 3.3/100 000 in Danes and 102.6/100 000 in immigrants in 1999. The ratio of male to female cases among Danes was 2.1.
