The statistical reports by 21 subjects of the Russian Federation (the Siberian and Far-Eastern Federal Districts) have been analyzed to define the rates of extrathoracic tuberculosis morbidity in these regions and its structure. It has been established that new trends have been recently evident in the pattern of extrathoraric tuberculosis. Firstly, there has been an increase in the incidence of bone and joint tuberculosis, young men and old women being predominant in its structure. Secondly, the steep rise in the incidence of genital tuberculosis, caused by the appearance of an experienced phthisiological gynecologist in one of the regions emphasizes that the fact that there is a large proportion of undetected extrathoracic tuberculosis cases is pressing. There is concern for the high percentage of children with extrapulmonary tuberculosis--this fact reflects the tense epidemic situation in the areas.
