Caption: X-ray of the chest area of a person suffering from tuberculosis, an infectious disease caused by the bacillus Mycobacterium tuberculosis, showing the presence of calcified nodular lesions (tubercles) in both lungs; the right lung (left) is more heavily infected than the left, where the infection is confined to the upper lobe (the tubercles appear as yellow areas over the blue of normal lung tissue). The disease not only wastes the lungs; it may spread to other regions via the lymphatic or blood circulations, causing miliary tuberculosis (tubercles spread throughout the body) or migrate to the brain, causing tuberculous meningitis.
