Good evening, thanks for the question


On the results of this examination the impression is that there appears to be a trace of TB infection in the lung, which is in accordance with the history of patients who have also undergone pulmonary TB treatment. After healing, pulmonary tissue infected with TB germs will heal and form a kind of scar tissue in the form of fibrotic lines or calcified nests, and is referred to as a former TB. The picture is likely to be permanent as well as scar tissue on the skin, so that if an examination is done it will still get results like that. Former TB is not infectious so it does not transmit to others, especially if it is not asymptomatic at present. Further tests as advised on the patient may aim to ascertain whether there is still an active infection. We recommend that you consult back with the company doctor regarding these results.


That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
