Tuberculosis. X-ray of the chest of a 25 year old male patient with pulmonary tuberculosis. Affected areas of the lungs (dark areas) are shown by grainy white patches. Pulmonary tuberculosis is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is spread by coughing and sneezing. The bacteria create primary tubercles, nodular lesions of the lungs. Symptoms include fever, weight loss and the coughing up of blood. Treatment is with long term antibiotics.
