In the study, 132 patients with lymphadenopathy were investigated. 52 (39.4%) were diagnosed with TB. MODS provided rapid (13 days), accurate diagnosis (sensitivity 65.4%), and reliable DST. Despite lower sensitivity than other methods, faster results and simultaneous DST are advantageous in resource-poor settings, supporting incorporation of MODS into diagnostic algorithms for extrapulmonary TB.
