Resumen
En los últimos años ha habido un florecimiento en la investigación en el campo de la tuberculosis, que incluyó las cuatro áreas principales: epidemiología, patogénesis/inmunología, diagnóstico y tratamiento. Este artículo hace una breve revisión de un número importante de trabajos científicos publicados en 2006 y 2007 que tuvieron una importancia relevante en la comprensión de Mycobacterium tuberculosis y la infección y la enfermedad que causa. Avances científicos relacionados con el diagnóstico y tratamiento que, esperamos, podrían contribuir al control global de la enfermedad.

Palabras clave
tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, epidemiología, inmunología, drogas antituberculosas, tuberculosis multirresistente, multidrug resistant tuberculosis

Abstract
In recent years, there has been flourishing scientific research in the field of tuberculosis (TB), including four main areas - epidemiology, pathogenesis / immunology, diagnosis, and treatment. This article briefly reviews a number of important scientific papers published in 2006 and in 2007 that have a pounding significance in the understanding of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and the infection and disease it causes. Scientific advances, especially those related to diagnosis and treatment, would hopefully contribute to the global control of TB.

Key words
tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, epidemiology, immunology, antituberculous drugs
