Course of Disease
No infection
Also the bacteria can get into
the lymph system into the blood
stream and infect the kindeys and
vascular skeletal areas which also have
a high oxygen content.
Latent Phase considered TB infection
but no active symptoms and is not
Immune System Weakend

1. When injected with the tuberculin, an elevation site called a wheel forms.
2. The patient returns after 48 hours and the site is checked for induration.
a. 0-4 mm HIV with immune suppression and likelihood of infection is high. Also positive if from a high TB prevalent area, have an abnormal chest x-ray, or closely exposed to an infectious case.
b. 5-9 mm for HIV infection, a child suspected of the disease, abnormal chest x-ray, or immune suppression.
c. 10 mm or more is positive in all other situations.
Skin Test- Mantoux
X-Ray Analysis
Sputum Analysis
World TB day takes place
