Tuberculosis is an important public health problem that needs good control. The interrelationship between air pollution and incidence of tuberculosis is interesting. In the present report, the authors report the observation on tuberculosis incidence in area with sulfur dioxide pollution. The retrospective analysis on public available on incidence of tuberculosis and ambient air sulfur dioxide level in Thailand is done. There is no significant relationship between air sulfur dioxide level and corresponding incidence of tuberculosis (r = –0.224, P = 0.535). In conclusion, there is a lack of association between air sulfur dioxide level and corresponding incidence of tuberculosis in our setting.
