    Abstract

    Tuberculosis (TB) still world’s and Indonesia problem. Approximately one third of the world population ever infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), but only about 10% become pulmonary TB. Presumably there is influence of individual genetic factors to TB infection. Resistance to TB influenced by genetic factors that control immunity. One of gene suspected has a role in immunity against TB is vitamin D receptor gene (VDR gene). Decreasing of this gene function influence to decrease of cellular immunity to Mtb
