An observational, analytic and cases-controls study of 126 patients paired by sex and age, admitted to the isolation room of "Guido Valadares" National Hospital, in Dili, East Timor, was carried out during 2015, aimed at determining the risk factors associated with lung tuberculosis in them. The cases group with 42 members, included those recently diagnosed with tuberculosis and those that presented relapse, therapeutic failure, resistance to multiple drugs, as well as previous suffering of the disorder with sequelae (concomitant bronchiectasis with infection, hemoptysis); as long as, the control group was conformed by 84 patients with non tuberculous breathing entities. Of the analyzed variables, the presence of alcoholism, malnutrition, intimate contact with patients whose baciloscopia was positive and being prisoner or former-prisoner, were the risk factors of more causal and statistical association in the infection of the disease and constituted the most outstanding results in this investigation
