ABSTRACT

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious bacterial disease characterized by the growth of nodules or tubercules in the tissues, especially the lungs. It is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. If not treated properly TB disease can be fatal. The disease is spread from one person to another through droplets containing the bacteria which are release into the air when the TB patient coughs, sneezes or talks. New techniques like Xpert MTB/RIF assay are present to diagnose the strains of Bacteria. Vaccines like Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) and rBCG30 induce immunity and cross protection against TB. The disease can be treated with drugs like Isoniazid, Rifampicin, Streptomycin and Ethambutol. In chossing a suitable drug regimen, underlying comorbidity, as well as the potential for drug interactions must be considered.
