Dear Madam / Mr Doctor,

Hi Frenky, Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


A person can be said to have relapsed pulmonary TB. If previously he had received tuberculosis treatment and was declared cured, then returned to treatment with a positive BTA (Acid-Resistant Bacteria) sputum examination or the result of positive TB germs. However, in some cases that show negative smear sputum examination results or cultures, but radiological images (chest x-rays) are suspected of having active TB lesions or also finding worsening of clinical symptoms, this can indicate conditions such as:

Non-tuberculosis lesions or x-rays such as lung parenchymal infection (pneumonia), fungal infection of the lungs, bronchiectasis, or malignancy

Recurrent pulmonary TB cases must be diagnosed by a pulmonary specialist who is competent with tuberculosis cases

An X-ray of the lung can also see if it shows active or inactive infectious lesions. Based on the literature, X-ray images of pleural effusion can be a sign of an active TB infection lesion. If you look at your X-ray results, you can find pleural effusion which is one of the X-rays of active pulmonary TB, but not all causes of plural effusion are tuberculosis infection. Therefore, to find out pulmonary TB cases of relapse or relapse must be diagnosed by a pulmonary specialist who is competent for tuberculosis. Because apart from complaints and x-rays, doctors also need a physical examination such as direct lung examination and possibly additional tests such as blood tests, sputum examination. Therefore, you should consult again with the pulmonary specialist who has handled you before regarding the evaluation of the X-rays. So that you get the right handlers according to your clinical condition and examination.


I hope this helps
