Considering that Hormozgan is among the areas with high prevalence of T.B, by evaluation of radiological manifestations of patients with pulmonary T.B, its prevalence, with respect to some factors such as: age, sex, sputum examination, association with AIDS and prevalence in certain groups such as prisoners was investigated. On the other hand, this study was aimed to help evaluation and earlier diagnosis of the patients.
