Causes and transmission
Most of the causes are with infected cells. Can be transmitted from infected cells, not contact with a person with TB. You are most likely to get it from a person in your home than with a stranger.
- Weak Immune System/ HIV, end stage kidney disease, diabetes, certain cancers (i don't know what cancers), cancer treatment, drugs to prevent rejection of implanted organs, malnutrition, etc.
- Traveling to foreign countries like Sub-Saharan Africa, India, China, Russia, etc.
- The place you work, like maybe heath care units, bacteria and virus studying...
The main organs affected are the lungs, but it sucks that it can spread to other parts of your body, well every organ. It can even cause meningitis and heart failure.
Similar to TB
Mycobacterial infections are very similar to TB. It can cause symptoms like TB, too.
But they could infect different parts - doesn't need to be lungs...
We are done...?
Thanks for reading my poster thing.
