Various guidelines are in place for management for COVID-19 and pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) in pregnancy. However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no significant guidelines for the management of COVID-19 and PTB co-infection in pregnancy. Pregnancy being an altered physiological state, the use of various drugs and their outcomes are altered. Here we present two cases of COVID-19 and PTB co-infection in pregnancy which were managed successfully.
