In order to investigate the role of MBL gene polymorphisms in susceptibility to tuberculosis (TB) we genotyped 487 TB cases and 232 controls. Among African-American individuals, the frequency of B allele was lower among controls than cases (p < 0.01), but we found no differences between cases and controls of white and Hispanic ethnicity.
