Vitamin D has a complex action on the immune system, among other cathelicidin production stimulator which enhances phagocytosis magrofag. TB is an infectious disease which causes high mortality and morbidity in the world. Vitamin D will give the effect when it binds to its receptor (VDR). Variants VDR gene polymorphism associated with susceptibility and resistance to pulmonary tuberculosis. Objective: to determine the effect of vitamin D in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis against ethnic Batak The study design with RCT, Ninety-two people with pulmonary TB smear positive new cases of ethnic Batak in Medan were randomized to receive 100,000 IU doses administered at 4 doses. Assessment were performed at 14, 28, 42, and 56 days. Levels of vitamin D beginning and end checked with ELISA techniques and ApaI polymorphisms of genes RVD checked by PCR RFLP. After two months of 86 patients who met the inclusion criteria as many as 40 people with vitamin D intervention and 46 to placebo. Sputum conversion times faster intervention group than placebo (p <0.05) with increased levels of vitamin D is much different (95.31% and placebo interventions 6.81%). 5) dengan peningkatan kadar vitamin D jauh berbeda (intervensi 95,31% dan plasebo 6,81%). Sputum conversion based ApaI VDR gene polymorphisms in the two groups was not significant (p> 0.05). Vitamin D proven to accelerate the conversion of sputum in the study population of patients with pulmonary TB ethnic Batak. ApaI polymorphism of the VDR gene genotype Aa and aa more conversions at 42 days while the AA genotype at 56 days.
