  Based on the part of the body where the bacteria have infected, tuberculosis can be classified into two heads- pulmonary and extra pulmonary tuberculosis. While extra pulmonary tuberculosis generally affects the other parts of the body, Pulmonary Tuberculosis affects the lungs. As tuberculosis of lungs or pulmonary tuberculosis is contagious, it can easily spread from one person to . Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is resistant to INH and RIF, and possibly additional agents. Extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) is resistant to INH, RIF, fluoroquinolones and either aminoglycosides or capreomycin or both. Nonadherence is a major cause of treatment failure, disease transmission, and development of drug. Pulmonary Tuberculosis: Its Pathology, Nature, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Prognosis, Causes, Hygiene, and Medical Treatment.   How is Pulmonary Tuberculosis Treated? The treatment for Pulmonary Tuberculosis is based on whether the affected individual has a latent or an active TB infection: The treatment for TB infection involves the use of antibiotics to destroy the bacteria causing the infection. The treatment regimen may vary between latent and active infections.

  INTRODUCTION Tuberculosis is a chronic Infectious disease • caused by ulosis/ • mainly affecting the lung causing Pulmonary TB • also affect other parts causing Extra Pulmonary TB Characterized by •Cough lasting > 3 wks and not respond to usual antibiotic. And hopefully the article Nursing Diagnosis for TB Tuberculosis Nursing diagnoses that commonly occurs in clients with pulmonary tuberculosis are as follows: 1. Ineffective airway clearance relate to: nursing care plan for pneumonia, nursing care plan book, nursing care plan for depression, nursing care plan for anxiety, nursing care. The complex subject of evaluating pulmonary function is presented by Feinsilver and should be helpful in current practice. In the chapter on differential diagnosis, most pulmonary conditions resembling pulmonary tuberculosis and often mistaken for it are described with accompanying roentgenograms. Similarly, diagnosis of extrapulmonary TB disease can be confirmed with a NAAT positive for M. tuberculosis complex or a culture positive for M. tuberculosis from affected body tissues or fluids. On average, it takes about 2 weeks to culture and identify M. .

  Early diagnosis and immediate initiation of treatment are essential for an effective tuberculosis (TB) control program. Delay in diagnosis is significant to both disease prognosis at the individual level and transmission within the community. Most transmissions occur between the onset of cough and initiation of treatment. A systematic review of 58 studies addressing delay in diagnosis and Cited by: Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease usually caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) bacteria. Tuberculosis generally affects the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body. Most infections do not have symptoms, in which case it is known as latent tuberculosis. About 10% of latent infections progress to active disease which, if left untreated, kills about half of those : Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Pulmonary TB is curable with an early diagnosis and antibiotic treatment. Pulmonary TB, also known as consumption, spread widely as an epidemic during the CT scan: an imaging test to check lungs for signs of an infection.

A positive test along with constitutional signs and symptoms as enumerated above, with or without signs in the lungs, justifies a definite diagnosis of tuberculosis which requires prompt and aggressive treatment. The X-ray, like the tuberculin test, is of far more value in diagnosing tuberculosis in childr Author: John Bromham Hawes.

With over 10 million new TB cases and million deaths, TB is a global health priority. Multidrug-resistant TB is of particular concern to both clinicians and national TB programmes: inthere were new rifampicin-resistant cases and confirmed multidrug-resistant TB cases.

Despite extensive investigation over the years, there is still a great deal to learn about the. We defined tuberculosis as "confirmed" if Xpert, line probe assay or culture for M. tuberculosis within six months of enrolment were positive, and "clinical" if tuberculosis treatment started. Epidemiological clues to diagnosis.

Among immigrants to the West from the Indian subcontinent, sub-Saharan Africa, South East Asia, the Baltic states and Russia (especially if they were previously imprisoned 4), the prevalence of tuberculosis is much higher than among the native white population.

Several tests are used to diagnose tuberculosis (TB), depending on the type of TB suspected. A GP may refer you to a TB specialist for testing and treatment if they think you have TB.

Pulmonary TB. Diagnosing pulmonary TB – TB that affects the lungs – can be difficult, and several tests are usually needed.
