Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) is a common infectious bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Though it can affect other parts of the body, Tuberculosis typically attacks the lungs. TB is spread through the air when people who have an active infection cough, sneeze, or otherwise transmit respiratory fluids. Many TB infections are asymptomatic and latent (not yet ill or contagious). Latent infections can eventually progress to active disease which, if left untreated, can be deadly. Tuberculosis is second only to HIV/AIDS as the greatest killer due to a single infectious agent.
