Hello Ariyanto

One of the examinations for tuberculosis infection (TB) is to use the MTB / RIF method, this examination is usually used to detect the presence or absence of infection with the bacteria that causes TB and also to detect whether the bacteria is resistant (immune) to a drug such as rifampicin for example.

If the results of the examination are "medium", then the examination shows that there are a number of TB bacteria in the patient who underwent the MTB / RIF examination, although the number was not too many.

TB disease, basically still curable but requires a long time and adherence to treatment, because if you do not comply with treatment or stop prematurely it can potentially cause the TB bacteria to become resistant (immune) so that in the end it will be increasingly difficult to eradicate the bacteria The tuberculosis. So those who are detected with TB infection are expected to routinely go to the doctor and consume regularly according to the dosage recommended by the treating doctor.
