The emergence of totally drug-resistant (TDR) tuberculosis in India and Iran has been recently discussed in the literature. The 15 TDR tuberculosis cases previously described in Iran were cited as resistant to “all first-line drugs (FLDs) and second-line drugs (SLDs)” [1, 2]. The 4 Mumbai cases were resistant to all FLDs (isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol, pyrazinamide, streptomycin) and SLDs tested (ofloxacin, moxifloxacin, kanamycin, amikacin, capreomycin, para-aminosalicylic acid, ethionamide).
