Tuberculosis Bacterial Suspension Diagnosis?
Hello I want to ask, yesterday I was hospitalized for 5 days at the health center and I asked for a certificate of my hospitalization diagnosed with SUSP TB. Now that’s what kind of disease it is, because the doctor here does not tell me or to my family
Good evening, thanks for the question
Suspended TB in question is from the word 'suspect tuberculosis', or in other words is suspected as a suspect (suspect) of tuberculosis infection or abbreviated to TB. Such suspicion must be confirmed through an appropriate investigation.
The TB infection in question can vary depending on what organ is attacked. TB infection can attack the pulmonary organs and extra-pulmonary organs, such as bones, membranes of the brain, intestines, lymph nodes, and so on. Symptoms that are felt can vary depending on the type of TB infection experienced. If it is confirmed to have a TB infection, then routine TB treatment is started as soon as possible in accordance with the national TB eradication program.
That's all, hope you can help
