Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. These bacteria infect about one-third of the world's population, but only an estimated 5%-10% of infected people will develop the active form of tuberculosis in their lifetime. The other 90%-95% of people appear to be able to contain the infection in a dormant/latent state, so that they do not become ill. Because tuberculosis is so prevalent, an estimated eight million people develop active tuberculosis each year, of which 2 million to 3 million die.
