2  Tuberculosis (TB) is divided into two categories: pulmonary and extra pulmonary.  Pulmonary Tuberculosis Types: Primary Tuberculosis Pneumonia Tuberculosis Pleurisy Cavitary Tuberculosis Miliary TB Laryngeal Tuberculosis

3  Primary TB pneumonia is considered a pulmonary form of TB. Since primary TB pneumonia attacks people with weaker immune systems, young children and the elderly are most at risk, as are those with HIV/AIDS. This type of TB is uncommon and attacks the lungs in the form of pneumonia with symptoms of high fever and cough.

4  Tb is treatable and a person can live with it, they may need medicine so they can be healthy and not transmit to others.

5  It’s classified as granulomatous inflammatory disease which is a disease that causes inflammation in cells.  Has both characteristics of gram positive and gram negative

6  TB is mostly seen in Sub-Sahara Africa and in Asia % of the people with the infection remain asymptomatic.  In 2010 there were 8.8 million new cases of TB and million deaths mainly in developing countries.  TB in Africa its mainly adolescents and young adults, in places like the U.S it is more common among older people and those that are immunocompromised or have a weakened immune system.  Its also quite common with people who have used illicit drugs.

7  Will only tell if patient is infected with the bacteria not the infection or disease.  TB Skin Test  Performed by injecting a small amount of fluid called tuberculin into the skin in the lower part of the arm.  The patient must return within hours to see the results of the test.  The examiner will look for a hard, raised, or swelling area, and if present will be measured by a ruler. Redness by itself is not considered part of the reaction.  Positive Results- means that the person is infected with TB bacteria  Negative Results- means the person does not have the bacteria and not likely to be infected with the infection or disease.
