  • Tuberculosis (TB for Tubercle Bacillus)


Tuberculosis (abbreviated as TB for Tubercle Bacillus) is a common and deadly infectious disease caused by the mycobacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis or Mycobacterium bovis, which most commonly affects the lungs (pulmonary TB) but can also affect the central nervous system, lymphatic system, circulatory system, genitourinary system, bones, joints, and even the skin.

Shown here is a visual look at a TB culture. The media visually emulates a scanning electron micrograph with false color added.
