I am suffering from pulmonary TB now undergoing treatment for 6 months. I want to ask why my sputum lab test results were negative, I was referred because of my pulmonary rotgen results. the health worker asked me to re-sputum check after 1 month later, but from the beginning my sputum check was negative. So to see if I have recovered, how can I be confused? thank you

Hi Alisha,

Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com

Pulmonary TB is an infection of the lung tissue caused by M. tuberculose bacteria. Symptoms that arise in the form of cough with phlegm> 2 weeks, night sweats, drastic reduction in BB, and so on.

Regarding your question, the diagnosis of pulmonary TB can be established even though the sputum examination results are negative. This is based on radiological / radiographs of chest X-rays that lead to pulmonary TB and are clinically supported by pulmonary TB, called smear negative pulmonary TB. Sputum examination returns at the end of the intensive phase and the development of radiological features of chest X-ray and clinical images is a consideration in assessing improvement.

So, I hope your question is answered.
