1.3 new goals – cure, prevent resistance and break chain of transmission.

2. Introduction of daily regime.

3. Definition and treatment of mono and polyresistance apart from mdr and xdr tuberculosis.

4. Treatment in cat 1 – 2 (hrze) + 4 (hre): continue ethambutol in continuation phase too.

5. Treatment in cat 2 – 2 (hrzes) + 1 (hrze) + 5 (hre).

6. Introduction of bedaquiline as a new drug. Atp synthase inhibitor specifically targets myc. Tb. Indicated in age more than 18 years. Contraindicatef in pregnancy and those taking hormonal ocp. It may be given in patients with stable arrythmia.

7. Definition of presumptive tuberculosis. Duration > 2 weeks etc.

8. New algorithm to diagnose tuberculosis – pulmonary, extrapulmonary, drug resistant.

9. Introduction of newer molecular methods like cbnaat and line probe assay in diagnostic algorithm apart from smear microscopy and chest xray.

10. Diagnosis of tuberculosis based on x-ray will be called as clinically diagnosed tuberculosis.

11. Sputum should be around 2ml and preferably be mucopurulent.

12. Follow up – new and previously treated drug sensitive pulmonary tuberculosis – no need to extend intensive phase, sputum microscopy at end of ip and end of treatment, weight monthly, chest x-ray if required.

13. Follow up – mdr tuberculosis – sputum smear monthly 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 months in intensive phase and at 3 months interval in continuation phase 9, 12, 15, extend ip phase by maximum 3 months total of 9 months.
Some more additions to it, adding here which might help to pg students. 
1) monitoring health status of tb treated patients (for recurrence of tb) for 24 months after treatment 
2) online monitoring of treatment adherence through 99dots programme (currently it is on pilot basis running for tb-hiv patients)
3) intensified tb case finding in clinically, socially and geographically vulnerable population. It's a provider initiated activity. 
4) now'tb suspect' term is replaced by'presumptive tb case.
5) in diagnostic algorithm sputum examination along with chest x-ray is recommended. 
6)'nsp' term is replaced by'microbiologically confirmed case'
7) nsn and others r called now onwards'clinically diagnosed tb' case. (terms replaced) 
8) definitions of cured, defaulted, treatment completed, failure, failure to respond, loss to follow up are somwhat changed. 
9) cat i, cat ii, cat iv terminologies r obsolete n replaced by drug sensitive (new or previously treated) and drug resistant tb categories.

Headache and dizziness can be because of some opthalmic refractory error- means he might need specs. So first check his number and if its ok, see a pediatric neurophysician.

Your son has got delayed speech and language skills, it could be just expressive delay where child understands everything but doesn't respond verbally. If he has got expression only at word level then kindly see some speech therapist. You can contact me back for further help.

He is on breast or stoped. Now he is supposed to eat food himself by his hand. So just keep thali in front of him on table and ignore him. Don't teach pamper or request him. You will find he will start eating graduallly. In next 15 days.

My 2.5 month old son is exclusively breast feed. However, he passes motion only once every 3-4 days. Now it's been 5 days. Should we be worried about it? Is there anything which can be given to him?

Since the child is exclusively on breast feed, you shd include more liquids in your diet. Take water, fruits, nimbupani, buttermilk, coconut water etc. Considering the hot weather, the baby needs to be fed more frequently.

My son is almost a yr old. Birthday on 6th may. He crawls and stands up holding something, but hasn' t started walking yet. Wat seems to be wrong?

Pediatrician, Pune
Nothing wrong, only god has not made everyone to be like tendulkar, there are some amir khans, some amitabh bacchans, some lata mangeshkars and many million unknown people, but they are not the same, some children walk early, some little late, if it is within the average normal range, we have just a habit to compare and needlessly worry.

For Boosting up your Child's Memory Power.
1. Install 2 drops badam rogan oil in each nostrils at least once a day.
2. Mix 4-5 drops of badam rogan oil in warm milk daily. This would also help to remove constipation in children.

My daughter is 11 months old and diagnosed with partial lactose intolerance at 2.5 mths old, she was partially taking mother milk until 7 mths age, she is now taking only zero lac milk powder. Her weight has been constant at 8 kg since past 2.months. what special care that should we do ? Any diet plan that she can recover on permanent basis ? I will be very gratefull.

Lactose intolerance is usually transient. Have you tried to introduce cows milk again or not ? You must try by giving some rice kheer or dahi chaval and wean the baby off the zerolac milk .

You can apply pressure on his sole and see if gets corrected by the age of 1 year. Or else he needs a surgery. Plastering is also tried but results are not consistent.

Sir, my 4 year old son suffering from calcium (hypocalcimia - kenny-caffey) and he was given rocaltrol 0. 25mcg (calcitrol capsules) every day. Is there any treatment to come over this problem ? Is it required to continue this medicine throughout his life period.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Kenny-caffey syndrome type 2 (kcs2) is an extremely rare hereditary skeletal disorder characterized by thickening of the long bones, thin marrow cavities in the bones (medullary stenosis), and abnormalities affecting the head and eyes. Most cases are obvious at birth (congenital). The primary outcome of kcs2 is short stature. Intelligence is usually normal. Individuals with kcs may also have recurrent episodes of low levels of calcium in the blood stream (hypocalcemia) that is caused by insufficient production of parathyroid hormones (hypoparathyroidism). In most cases, kcs2 is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder. Being a genetic disorder complete cure may not be possible.

Try to make colourful food. Try to make her eat with her frnds. Try to add butter in khichdi and dalia. 2-3 gap in meals. Try new food items and give fair trial for 20 mins for each food item.

Hi Dr. My baby is now 12 days old. But I am experiencing pain while breast feeding. What should I do?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
This is very common problem while feeding as some part of milk is not expressed from the breasts causing it engorged. If breasts are engorged (red/pink and firm), then baby will not be able to suck milk properly. You may need to start with gentle hand expressing or a breast pump until your baby is able to put nipple comfortably into his or her mouth. Try using warm cloth on your breasts before a feed to help the milk to flow.
