Results:
Both groups did not differ by quantity of boys and girls, by average age.

Children with pulmonary tuberculosis often had no complaints.
Cavities were recorded in 11 children (22,9%) from families with cases of death and in 13 children (27,1%) from families without cases of death (χ2 = 0,056; p = 0,814). The excretion of Mycobacterium tuberculosis was determined in 16 children (33,3%) from families with cases of death and 11 children (22,9%) from families without cases of death (χ2 = 0,824;p = 0,364).
The frequency of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in the groups differed. Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis was observed in 11 children (22,9%) from families with cases of death and 2 children (4,2%) from families without cases of death (χ2 = 5,694; p = 0,017).

Conclusions: Children from families with cases of death from tuberculosis often have drug-resistant tuberculosis.
