||Brief reports are presented of two cases of occupationally-acquired tuberculosis in technicians working in the myobacterial room of a laboratory in the Netherlands. Following the infections, safety regulations were reviewed and action taken to ensure compliance with safety guidelines. In particular, all equipment not needed for myobacterial cultures was removed from the room and entrance was restricted to staff working in the myobacterial department.
