Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a treatable, communicable disease that has two general states: latent infection and active disease.

With few exceptions, only those who develop active tuberculosis in the lungs or larynx can infect others, usually by coughing, sneezing, or otherwise expelling tiny infectious particles that someone else inhales.Pericardial Tuberculosis.
