Mycobacterium tuberculosis - Tuberculosis

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB), as well as other nontuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM), can be infectious agents in humans. Screening for latent TB involves either a tuberculin skin test (TST) or interferon-gamma release assay (eg, QuantiFERON Gold). The latter should not be used in patients with active disease symptoms.
