Background: MDRTB has been identified as a developing threat , in recent years. MDRTB treatment costs 100times more than sensitive TB and  requires intensive long time management and it has more health complications.

Materials & Methods: sputum samples were collected from all new cases of TB that faced with treatment failure in bushehr province between 2009 and 2013, and sent to Dr.Masih Daneshvari hospital for drug susceptibility test. In this study RFLP method was used for DNA isolation and PCR multiplex was used to assess drug sensitivity.

Results: we found 398 new cases of TB in three years of study, and 39 patients faced with treatment failure, finally six of them were reported as MDRTB (1.5%).

Conclusion: our data are close to the national statistics, however it is necessary to prevent further spread of resistant TB.

Keywords: Tuberculosis, Drug resistant, PCR multiplex
