Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which usually attack a patient’s lungs but can attack any part of the body, including the kidneys, spine, and the brain. Not everyone infected with TB bacteria will be sick, and there are two TB-related conditions—latent TB infection (LTBI) and TB disease. If TB disease is not treated properly, it can be fatal. Transmission of the disease occurs when a contagious patient coughs. This spreads bacilli through the air. There are about nine million new TB cases and approximately 1.3 million TB-related deaths each year throughout the world.
