What is TB?
Tuberculosis is an infection caused by a germ called mycobacteria. TB usually infects the lungs, but it can infect other parts of the body, including the kidneys, bones and lymph nodes.  TB infection can be latent or active.

  • Latent TB infection means that the TB germ is in your body (usually the lungs), but it is not actively growing, spreading or causing symptoms. A person with latent TB cannot spread the germ.
  • Active TB infection means that the germ is growing and spreading in the lungs and/or other parts of the body. A person with active TB may become sick, and can make other people sick. Both latent and active TB can be cured if you take antibiotics prescribed by a doctor.

How is TB Spread?

A person with active TB of the lungs can spread the germs through the air by coughing, sneezing or even singing. Nearby people who breathe in the germs can then become infected. Usually you have to be very close to a person with active TB for a long time before you can get infected. You cannot get TB by touching doorknobs, handles, or other objects.

What Are the Symptoms of TB?

The symptoms depend upon which part of the body is infected with TB, but common signs of active TB include: a cough lasting more than 2 weeks; fevers; night sweats; loss of appetite; weight loss; fatigue (tiredness); and coughing up blood. If you have symptoms call for an appointment at 845-364-2997.

Who Should be Tested for TB?

Get tested for TB if:

  • You have symptoms of active TB disease; or
  • You have spent time with a person with known or suspected active TB disease; or
  • You have HIV infection or another condition that weakens your immune system; or
  • You are from a country outside the United States where active TB disease is common; or
  • You have visited or lived somewhere where there is a high TB rate; or
  • You inject illegal drugs
