AbstractBackgroundMycobacterium tuberculosis is a necessary, but not sufficient, cause of tuberculosis. A number of studies have addressed the issue of riskfactors for tuberculosis development. Croatia is a European country with an incidence rate of 14/100 000 which is slowly decreasing.The aim of this study is to evaluate the potential demographic, socioeconomic, behavioural and biological risk factors for tuberculosis inCroatia in comparison to other high-income, low-incidence European countries.MethodsA total of 300 tuberculosis patients were matched for age, sex and county of residence to 300 controls randomly selected from generalpractitioners registers. They were interviewed and their medical records were evaluated for variables broadly described as potential riskfactors.ResultsIn multiple logistic regression, the following factors were significant: parents born in a particular neighbouring county (Bosnia andHerzegovina) (OR=3.90, 95% CI 2.01-7.58), the lowest level of education (OR=3.44, 95% CI 1.39-8.50), poor household equipment(OR=4.72, 95% CI 1.51-14.76), unemployment (OR=2.69, 95% CI 1.18-6.16), contact with tuberculosis (OR=2.19, 95% CI 1.273.77), former (OR=2.27, 95% CI 1.19-4.33) and current smoking habits (OR=2.35, 95% CI 1.27-4.36), diabetes (OR=2.38, 95% CI1.05-5.38), a malignant disease (OR=5.79, 95% CI 1.49-22.42), being underweight in the previous year (OR=13.57, 95% CI 1.21152
