Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacteria. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. Not everyone infected with TB bacteria becomes sick. As a result, two TB-related conditions exist: latent TB infection (LTBI) and TB disease. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal.

Latent TB is diagnosed and managed by our clinic physician and nursing staff. We provide case management and directly observed therapy for patients with active TB.
