Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of the study is to contribute to epidemiological data related to tuberculosis in Turkey by analyzing the epidemiological characteristics of patients registered in the Nevşehir Community Health Center Tuberculosis Unit.
Material and Methods: In this study which is descriptively typed, the data of the registered patients between January 2011 and December 2017 in the Tuberculosis Control Unit of the Public Health Center of Nevsehir were retrospectively analyzed. The demographic characteristics and tuberculosis-related characteristics of the patients and the distribution of Tuberculosis patients by years were scanned through Electronic Tuberculosis Management System and related documents and the results were evaluated electronically.
Results: 53,6% of the patients were diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis. Nurse, dental technician, soldier, prisoner, student, and masseur were among the occupations that had the risk of spreading tuberculosis. It was determined that 18.6% of them actively smoked. In this study, the number of asylum seekers having Tuberculosis disease was found as 6,4%. and pulmonary tuberculosis rate was found significantly higher in men. Additionally, the disease was found to be significantly more common in the rural districts.
Conclusion: At the end of the study, it was determined that the patients with tuberculosis lived in low income and crowded families and in unfavorable locations. It was recommended that primary precautions should be taken according to the risk of the disease spreading at the rural district where the number of cases was the highest.
