Basics of tb (2) Including Tranmission, symptoms
« on: November 06, 2016, 13:39:38 PM »
About 50 per cent of cases where symptoms develop are fatal. Small growths known as tubercules affect the lungs, causing tissue damage and reducing their ability to process oxygen. In a small proportion of cases the disease can also affect the central nervous system, or the bones and joints. If the bacteria enter the bloodstream through damaged tissue they can spread throughout the body in what is known as miliary tuberculosis, which is particularly common among young children and fatal in almost a third of all cases.
