Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Blood sampling, tuberculosis (TB) test. Close-up of a blood sample being taken from a patient's arm using a vacutainer and butterfly catheter during TB testing. TB is an infection by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It usually infects the lungs and can cause severe scarring. Once diagnosed, a TB infection is treated by a course of antibiotic drugs, often several taken in combination. If the infection is not completely eradicated, then drug-resistant forms can develop. Photographed in the UK.
