II. Compare the tolerability of these two drugs in these patients. III. Establish the relationships between achieved serum concentration, minimal inhibitory concentration, and early bactericidal activity of paromomycin and streptomycin.
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a randomized study. Patients are randomized to one of three treatment arms. Patients in arms I and II receive one of two doses of paromomycin intramuscularly once a day for 3 days. Patients in arm III receive streptomycin intramuscularly once a day for 3 days. All patients then begin a course of standard therapy for tuberculosis.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics Study, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Tuberculosis of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges (TUBERCULOSIS, MENINGEAL), most often caused by MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS and rarely by MYCOBACTERIUM BOVIS. The infection may be limited to the nervous system or coexist in other organs (e.g., TUBERCULOSIS, PULMONARY). The organism tends to seed the meninges causing a diffuse meningitis and leads to the formation of TUBERCULOMA, which may occur within the brain, spinal cord, or perimeningeal spaces. Tuberculous involvement of the vertebral column (TUBERCULOSIS, SPINAL) may result in nerve root or spinal cord compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp717-20)
The dormant form of TUBERCULOSIS where the person shows no obvious symptoms and no sign of the causative agent (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) in the SPUTUM despite being positive for tuberculosis infection skin test.
MYCOBACTERIUM infections of the lung.
A single lung lesion that is characterized by a small round mass of tissue, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and can be detected by chest radiography. A solitary pulmonary nodule can be associated with neoplasm, tuberculosis, cyst, or other anomalies in the lung, the CHEST WALL, or the PLEURA.
Pathological conditions of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM caused by infection of MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS. Tuberculosis involvement may include the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.
