Tuberculosis morbidity in children, adolescents, young people and adults for the period of 1986-1990 has been analysed. Parameters of morbidity were compared with general morbidity of the population of Chelyabinsk. It was found that at the present stage of tuberculosis control parameters of general morbidity remained unchanged. Morbidity in adolescents and young people aged 18-19 years markedly decreased, while a tendency to its slow growth was revealed in children and in subjects aged 24-29 years. In contrast to other groups, parameters of morbidity in adults are the highest (32.7-37.4 per 1,000,000) and steady owing to which measures aimed at tuberculosis control should be improved.
