My 3 years old has TB, will it affect his growth?
Q: My child is 3 years old and has TB. The doctor says that it is in its initial stage. He gave medicines for 6 months. The test he took says: 20 MM MT Positive. How did he get this because nobody around us has this disease? I sit curable and will it affect his growth?
A:Primary complex is the name of the illness of TB seen in children. The infection occurs in the majority of children in endemic countries, like India. It is not a cause for worry, as it is treatable and does not affect growth.
