Bandar Lampung is one of cities in Indonesia with an increasing tuberculosis (TB) incidence (2,056 cases in 2016 compared to 1,195 cases in 2012). The increasing suggests that there are TB transmissions, especially internal house transmission. This study aimed to identify significant influence of housing condition (housing density, ventilation and in-house smoking pollution variables) to TB internal house transmission. A case control study was used to study the influence of related variables. Case sample group (30 samples) and control sample group (30 samples) are smear-positive TB patients with internal house transmission and non internal house transmission respectively, and were obtained from Panjang and Sukaraja Community Health Services. Data were collected by using questioner, and was then analyzed using bivariate Chi square analysis. Results show that high housing density (odds ratio/OR: 3.500; 95% (confidence interval/CI: 1.201–10.196), less ventilation (OR: 4.333; 95% CI: 1.203–15.605) and in-house smoking pollution (OR: 6.417; 95% CI: 2.084–19.755) are TB internal house transmission risk factors. In conclusions, high housing density, less ventilation and in-house smoking pollution are significant TB internal house transmission risk factors in Bandar Lampung. Therefore, TB control program should be highlighted the concerned variables in order to accelerate TB incidence reduction. Keywords: housing condition, tuberculosis, internal house transmission, risk factors
