TB drug resistance and surgery. Artwork illustrating the concepts associated with the use of surgery as an adjunctive (secondary) treatment for tuberculosis (TB) in a case where the disease is resistant to drugs. The lungs and the trachea (airway) are at centre. The TB-infected area (dark) is circled (dotted line). The background consists of TB drugs (white pills) and the Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacterium (green) that causes the disease. Tuberculosis usually attacks the lungs but can also affect other parts of the body.
