Children and adolescents are most susceptible to the development of tuberculosis, especially when they have concomitant diseases, which leads to a decrease in both humoral and cellular immunity. One of these concomitant diseases is helminthiasis. It has been proven that the body's immunological reactivity decreases with worm invasion, which, in turn, contributes to the development of various infections, including tuberculosis. The purpose of the work is to study the peculiarities of the clinical course of primary tuberculosis in children with helminthosis treated in the center of phthisiology and pulmonology of the Samarkand region, as well as the archival medical history of the patients. The most common type of helminthiasis is hymenolepidosis - 40%, enterobiosis - 33%, less - giardiasis (22%) and ascariasis (5%). Symptoms of intoxication and damage to the bronchus-pulmonary system are detected when worm infestation is observed in patients with primary tuberculosis. The presence of worm infestation has a negative effect on the treatment of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis, therefore, treatment measures should correspond to the course of both diseases.
