Caption: Tuberculosis. Doctors comparing X-rays of the lungs of an healthy patient (right) with those of a patient affected by tuberculosis. The diseased lungs appear covered with dense opacities marking the infected sites. Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused in humans by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The infection is passed from person to person via airborne droplets. The bacteria then multiply in the lungs to form an infected "focus". The diagnosis is made from the patient's symptoms (coughing, fever, chest pain and shortness of breath), chest X-ray and tests on the sputum and skin. Treatment is with antibiotic drugs.
