Tuberculosis incidences are increasing by nearly 6.6% every year. Tuberculosis are associated with HIV/AIDS approximately 32% of cases. Objective: The purpose of this study to understand the cause, clinical manifestations and treatment course for Tuberculosis. Material and methods: detailed clinical history and physical examination was done. All the pertinent investigations were studied thoroughly of the selected case. Results: the Tuberculosis is confirmed with the help of Tuberculin Skin Test, chest X ray: Significant cavities found and Sputum AFB+ Conclusion: Tuberculosis is the serious infectious bacterial disease that mainly affects the lungs Tuberculin Skin Test, chest X ray and Sputum AFB are the diagnostics methods. The prognosis is depend usually better if treatment received on time.
