Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB), is one of the world’s most devastating human pathogens that cause more than 2 million deaths annually. In addition, an estimated 2 billion people are latently infected with M. tuberculosis. Ethiopia is ranked 7th among TB burden shouldering countries in the world. The data collection was carried out typically by secondary data source from already recorded document. The data was obtained from the data clack of pulmonary tuberculosis patients (PTB) individuals at Yirga Cheffe Health Center. From a total of 1190 subjects who are registered to assessed for tuberculosis diseases at the Yirga Cheffe Health Center study sites, 676 (56.81 %) male were diagnosed followed by female 514 (43.19 %) were diseased by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The PTB disease were highly predominant among male with increase slightly across the year from 2008-2013 and the highest were 58.75 % at 2013. The TB disease were increased among children from 2008-2013 in both sex (male and female). The highest percentage of pulmonary tuberculosis patients were observed at 2012 on male at age >49 with 10.18 % while on female pulmonary tuberculosis patients were observed at 2011 with 7.32 %. To conclude that the prevalence of PTB disease among both sex at study area were high in early. The pulmonary tuberculosis patients were decreased across the 2008-2013.
