Yes: If you had it and it was cured, you had tuberculosis. Cure does not give you a clean slate. There are some conditions where a patient considered cured may re-activate. It would also be an important historical feature when they consider doing any form of TB screening. If they don't have the proper information they may treat you as a new case of TB.
