The incidence of tuberculosis in the United Kingdom, which declined beginning in the middle of the 19th century, began to increase in the late 1980s. The distribution of tuberculosis by geographic area, age, and ethnic group is discussed. Drug resistance is high among U.K. residents born abroad, but the proportion of drug-resistant cases is remaining stable.
