TB is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is spread by coughs and sneezes. It enters the lungs creating primary tubercles, nodular lesions of dead tissue and bacteria. It can spread to other organs, including the brain, via the lymph and blood. Treatment is with long tern antibiotics. If left untreated it can be fatal.
