Tuberculosis is a major global public health problem and one of the leading infectious causes of death. Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacillus Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It typically affects the lungs (pulmonary tuberculosis) but can affect other sites as well (extrapulmonary tuberculosis). tuberculosis is mainly transmitted by air, but it can also be transmitted by gastrointestinal tract. In 90% of immunocompetent people latent infection with M. tuberculosis remains asymptomatic, however, infants or immunodeficient people (e.g. those infected with AIDS or malnourished) are more likely to develop clinical tuberculosis.

In most cases, tuberculosis is treatable and curable but in recent years, the bacteria that causes the disease is quickly developing resistance to many of the drugs used to treat it.
