Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal. TB disease was once the leading cause of death in the United States. Onslow County is a low risk area for Tuberculosis. Many employers and schools require the placement of a PPD (TB skin test) yearly. For TB Basics, click Here.
PPDs can be given Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, although these days may vary during weeks with holidays. They are “read” 48-72 hours later. Clients with positive PPDs will be counseled about the need for a chest X-ray and treatment options.
