The diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) in children is difficult, especially in developing countries with limited resources. In this retrospective review, we analyse the tuberculosis score chart (TSC) developed by Dr Keith Edwards. At the Raihu Health Centre, a rural hospital in Papua New Guinea, we analysed the diagnostic pathways to establish the diagnosis of TB and the use of the TSC during 1994 and 1995 and give a description of this TSC, as well as the data of 301 children in which the diagnosis of TB was likely.
