This study was applied on 60 TB patients admitted in the Babylon Center of Tuberculosis and Chest Diseases in Hilla, Iraq. TB patients consisted of 38 males and 22 females with 40 healthy individuals a control group. Blood samples were collected from patients and control group to estimate phagocytic index, interferon gamma (IFN-?), and anti-measles IgG level. The level of anti-measles IgG showed a significant increase (27.9 DU, p<0.05) in comparison to control (18.9 DU). The cell mediated parameters showed a significant decrease (p< 0.05) in phagocytic index (7.3%) with no significant increase in IFN-? level (0.123 IU/ml, p> 0.05) compared to the control group.
