 Primary –selflimiting    Postprimary-progressive
 Infection in patients  Reactivation and
  previously not exposed reinfection
  to M tuberculosis
  (under age 5 in the
  past, now common in
  adults also)
Chest X-ray is normal in TB

 50%
 75%
 15%
Manifestations of Primary
TB are:

   Parenchymal disease
   Lymphadenopathy
   Miliary disease
   Pleural Effusion
Manifestations of
Postprimary TB are:

   Upper lobe distribution
   Cavity
   Absence of adenopathy
   Airway involvement
Human disease causing
mycobacteria are more likely:

 Slow growing
 Fast growing
Mycobacteria – aerobic rods

 Categories by disease cause: 1.tuberculosis
  complex: causes human disease
  2.nontuberculous or atypical
 Categories by rate of growth: 1.rapid
  growing: < 7 days 2.slow growing:> 7 days
 Rapid: M.abscessus, M.fortiutum,
 Slow: MTB, MAC, M.Kansasii

 Respiratory
 Desiccated bacilli remain airborne for long
  time – indoor close many months contact is
  necessary for transmission
 Laryngeal, transbronchial, cavitary disease
  produce most bacilli
 Ventillation reduces infectiousness

 TB bacilli in the body elicit acute
  inflammatory response – no symptoms
 Macrophages ingest bacilli and transport
  them to regional lymph nodes

 Cavity: Gas-filled space in an area of lung
  consolidation or mass or nodule produced by
  the expulsion of a necrotic part of the lesion
  via the bronchial tree; wall thickness varies
 Cyst: wall thickness is 4 mm or less
 Bulla: wall thickness < 4 mm

   The History of Tuberculosis
• The Hebrew word for phthisis or consumption (schachepheth)
  means to waste away occurs twice in the Bible:
• Leviticus 26:16
•     I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden
  terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and
  cause the soul to pine away; also you will sow your seed
  uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up.
• Deuteronomy 28:22
•     The Lord will smite you with consumption and with fever
  and with inflammation and with fiery heat and with the sword
  and with blight and with mildew and they will pursue you until
  you perish.
    The History of Tuberculosis

 By 1650 consumption was the leading cause of mortality
  and became a reference in some of Shakespeare's plays-
  one of the consumptive lovers, in "Much A Do About
  Nothing" , as well as scrofula in "Macbeth"
     The History of Tuberculosis
• Early attempts at treatment can be found throughout history
   Greeks believed cutting off cool air eventuated in a burning up of the
   Romans put importance of diet
   Hebrews control disease from diet to the destruction of clothing
• Early "cures" from physicians
   Warm sea air
   Milk from pregnant women
   Seaweed placed under the pillow
   Cold baths
   Deep breathing
  The History of Tuberculosis

 The first breakthrough came when German
  bacteriologist named Robert Koch isolated the
  infectious agent known as tuberculosis bacteria or
  tubercle bacilli in 1882. He was later awarded the
  Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 1905
     The History of Tuberculosis
 The first sanatorium opened in 1854 in Gorbersdorf, Germany.
  Sick patients were given wholesome food and plenty of fresh air.
  This became the modern way to fight the disease. The
  sanatoriums provided medical care for almost 100 years and
  became one of the most remarkable and unique periods of
  medical care in history.

 By 1889 in the USA the National Tuberculosis Association fully
  realized that TB was distinctly preventable and not directly

 No real progress was made until new antibiotics were used
  between 1945-1960
 It has taken almost three thousand years to understand the full
  nature of Tuberculosis
