tuberculosis, commonly known as tb, is a bacterial infection that can spread through the lymph nodes and bloodstream to any organ in your body. It is most often found in the lungs. Most people who are exposed to tb never develop symptoms because the bacteria can live in an inactive form in the body.
Tb is spread from person to person through the air. When people with lung tb cough, sneeze or spit, they propel the tb germs into the air. A person needs to inhale only a few of these germs to become infected.
**proper medical treatment under the specialists is necessary to get cured.
