Tuberculosis, infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In most forms of the disease, the bacillus spreads slowly and widely in the lungs, causing the formation of hard nodules (tubercles) or large cheeselike masses that break down the respiratory tissues and form cavities in the lungs Nationwide, in 2020 TB cases decreased by 20% during the COVID-19 pandemic to a rate of 2.2 cases for every 100,000 U.S. residents. This reduction in incidence is likely due to decreased transmission due to COVID-19 mitigation measures and/or reduced or delayed diagnosis of TB cases There are a number risk factors for tuberculosis infection; worldwide the most important of these is HIV.Co-infection with HIV is a particular problem in Sub-Saharan Africa, due to the high incidence of HIV in these countries. Smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day increases the risk of TB by two to four times while silicosis increases the risk about 30 fold Pulmonary TB occurs when M. tuberculosis primarily attacks the lungs. However, it can spread from there to other organs. Pulmonary TB is curable with an early diagnosis and antibiotic treatment... Drug-susceptible TB disease is treated with a multiple-drug regimen administered by DOT for 6-9 months (usually isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide for 2 months, followed by isoniazid and rifampin for an additional 4 months).
