Results: The top five drug resistance sequences of nine kinds of anti-TB drugs were S (24.535%) >INH (13.383%) >RFP (8.178%) >OFX (4.089%) >EMB (1.859%). Conclusion: The anti-TB medicine needs to be use under the guidelines to minimize drug resistance, and the elder age and poor also the work focus in the future.
