In recent years, many regions of the world have seen an increase in the incidence of extrapulmonary tuberculosis (ETB). In economically developed countries, the proportion of ETBs is on average 1/4 - 1/3 of the total number of cases of tuberculosis (TB). In developing countries, ETB is 1/15 to 1/20 of all TB cases. This situation depends on several factors: the loss of nosological forms of ETB in statistical reports, the detection of TB of these localizations in terms of accessibility, and the insufficient alertness of both family doctors and narrow specialists. Diagnoses of nosological forms of ETB are often made at the stages of the disease with loss of function of the affected organs. If pulmonary TB is more often affected by socially maladaptive men, then ETB is predominantly socially adapted women of reproductive age, which also focuses on the relevance of timely detection and treatment of ETB.
