    Tuberculosis is classically a disease of lungs, but has the nasty habit of appearing anywhere in the body, including bones (can cause vertebra collapse) and basically any organ. It can be fatal. Get check out if you think you have it. Then again, anybody who has ever been exposed to TB will have a positive test wether you have it or not, has to be verified by an MD.

    TB can occur in every system of the body. Different types of TB include respiratory (pulmonary is outdated terminology); laryngeal; non-respiratory, specifically miliary and TB meningitis. TB can be found in bones, blood, and other body fluids.
