Tuberculosis is diagnosed by finding Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria in a clinical specimen taken from the patient. Symptoms include low grade remittent fever, chills, night sweats, appetite loss, weight loss, and easy fatigability. There are several tests available to diagnosis of tb. They are blood test, imaging test, sputum test and the tb skin test.
Tragically, development and implementation of TB diagnostics kept pace neither with medical technology nor with the catastrophic explosion of TB, including drug-resistant TB, in the wake of the global human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) pandemic. Inadequate tools and weak systems for laboratory-based diagnosis of active TB have contributed to underdiagnosis of disease, leading to individual morbidity and mortality and to continued transmission
