Is Treatment Of Miliary TB The Same As Pulmonary TB?
Hello, I want to ask if the miliary tuberculosis is the worst tuberculosis level or not, and is hepatitis caused by drugs contagious and can be cured? And Is the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis the same as normal pulmonary tuberculosis?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically miliary TB can occur due to the spread of tuberculosis bacteria through the blood. Because it has spread to the blood, miliary TB itself can manifest in the lungs, it can also manifest in other organs (extra lungs), such as in lymphatic tissue, bones and joints, liver, brain, and adrenal glands. Military TB itself has a severity, some manifestations are not too severe (symptoms can be similar to ordinary tuberculosis infection), there is also what is called fulminant miliary TB, where there is organ failure, septic shock, and also acute respiratory disorders. Treatment for miliary TB is the same as ordinary pulmonary TB, but the drug regimen can be modified if there is suspicion of drug resistance, and the duration can be extended if miliary TB occurs in children, people with HIV or other immune system disorders, or if the therapeutic response is not very good. People who have tuberculosis in the central nervous system, bones and joints can also get longer treatment.
Hepatitis only describes an inflammatory condition in the liver. Inflammation in the liver can be caused by various causes, one of which is due to side effects of drugs. Hepatitis because this drug is certainly different from hepatitis caused by hepatitis virus infection. Hepatitis due to drugs will not be transmitted to others because it is not an infectious disease. Hepatitis due to drug use can heal by itself (as long as the damage is not too severe and not too extensive) if drug use is stopped.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
