A 21-year-old female asked:
why doesn't m. tuberculosis localise in lung apices during primary infection but localises in the apicea in the secondary infection specifically?

TB: It is not necessarily localized in the apices, that is simply one site of reactivation. You really need to get an infectious diseases text (recommend mandell), or a textbook of pathophysiology and read about this. Or you can go online to the national medical library and look these things up. Be a great med student.
