Pulmonary TB is a lung infection due to mycobacterium tuberculosis. The risk of germ infection is increased in health workers and laboratories, at home with pulmonary TB patients, low body immunity and others. Symptoms that arise are coughing for more than 3 weeks, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, chest pain, weight loss for no apparent reason and high fever accompanied by sweating especially at night.
Diagnosis of this disease is based on clinical data (symptoms that appear), sputum smear sputum examination and chest X-ray.
These bacteria can spread to lymph nodes causing TB lymphadhenitis. Lymph nodes that are attacked will swell without pain. Swelling feels hard. If it ruptures, it will produce greenish yellow pus.
The diagnosis of TB lymphadhenitis is based on clinical symptoms and anatomic pathology examination. Samples for anatomical pathology examination are taken invasive, ie with fine needles. However, if clinical evidence is very strong, plus there is strong evidence of bacterial infection in the lungs, so that anatomic pathology examination is not necessary.
Treatment to be given is treatment with anti-tuberculosis drugs for 6 months. Routine control every 2 weeks in the first month, then enough control every month. When in control the doctor will see the progress of therapy and side effects of the drug. If your disease diagnosis is right, then in 2 weeks the condition will appear to improve. Every 2 and 6 months of treatment will be evaluated by clinical examination, sputum check and chest X-ray.
Thus, hopefully useful.
