Latent TB can turn into active TB, so it is important to get treatment no matter which form of TB you have.
TB is caused by bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. You can catch the bacteria by breathing in droplets from a cough or sneeze from someone who has active TB.
Both latent and active TB are treated with antibiotic medicine. You may need to take antibiotics for up to 6–9 months.
