Mortality of HIV/TB patients in Eastern Europe (EE) is high. Little is known about their causes of death (COD).To assess and compare mortality rates and COD in HIV/TB patients across EE and Western Europe and Argentina (WEA) in an international cohort study.Mortality rates and COD were analysed by time from TB diagnosis (12 months) in 1078 consecutive HIV-/TB patients. Factors associated with TB-related death were examined in multivariate Poisson regression analysis.347 patients died during 2625 PYFU. Mortality in EE was 3-9-fold higher than in WEA. TB was the main COD in EE in 80%, 66% and 61% of patients who died 12 months after TB diagnosis, compared to 50%, 0% and 15% in the same time periods in WEA (p
