We conducted a case-control study among children in Lima, Peru to identify factors associated with tuberculosis disease. Known close contact with someone with tuberculosis disease, prior hospitalization, and history of anemia were associated with a higher tuberculosis disease rate. Consumption of fruits/vegetables ≥5 days/week was associated with a lower rate. Isoniazid uptake was low among children with a known contact. Copyright © 2013 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
