Özet

Background: Lung cancer and tuberculosis (TB) are two major public health problems. They can coexist or appear sequentially. In patients with TB, lung cancer risk is increased. However, vice versa is not crystal clear. In this study, we aimed to determine the development of TB in patients with resectabled non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in a 2-year postoperative follow-up period.
