Tuberculosis could be a transmissible infection that typically affects the lungs. It may also spread to other components of the body like the mind and spine. It is caused by a bacterium referred to as tubercle  bacillus. The classic signs of active TB are persistent cough with bloody mucus, fever, night sweats, and weight loss. Historically, this was referred to as “consumption” thanks to the loss of cargo. Infection of varied organs can have many symptoms. TB is transmitted through the air when people with active TB in their lungs cough, spit, talk, or sneeze. Active infection is more common in people with HIV / AIDS and in smokers.
