AbstractTreatment outcomes for adolescents with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis are rarely reported and, to date, have been poor. Among 90 adolescents from Lima, Peru, 68 (75.6%) achieved cure or completion of treatment. Unsuccessful treatment was less common in the Peru cohort than previously described in the literature.
