Description

Tuberculosis is a disease originating from a bacterial infection. It will usually attack the lungs, but can be present elsewhere in the body.

Diagnosis

The bacteria causing tuberculosis is usually transmitted via close contact with an infected animal, and is closely linked with overcrowding and malnutrition. Classic symptoms include a chronic cough, fever and rapid weight loss.
