Datos Básicos Sobre la Tuberculosis

La tuberculosis o TB es causada por una bacteria llamada Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Estas bacterias por lo general atacan a los pulmones, pero también pueden atacar otras partes del cuerpo, como los riñones, la columna vertebral y el cerebro. No todas las personas infectadas por las bacterias de la tuberculosis se enferman. Por eso, existen dos afecciones relacionadas con la tuberculosis: la infección de tuberculosis latente (LTBI, por sus siglas en inglés) y la enfermedad de tuberculosis. Si no se trata adecuadamente, la enfermedad de tuberculosis puede ser mortal.
