Can tuberculosis neck lymphadenitis become active or continue to spread to other organs of the body during treatment?

TB stays put: Tuberculosis generally will not spread to other organ systems during treatment, as long as you are infected with a strain that is sensitive to the medications that have been prescribed. If your neck mass becomes larger, if other masses appear, or if you have persistent fevers, respiratory symptoms or weight loss, I would consult with your tuberculosis doctor.

I am on 5th month treatment for TB neck lymphadenitis. Can TB neck lymphadenitis cause infertility? Can I conceive in future after treatment? ..

No: TB neck lymphadenitis won't cause infertility but if your tubes are also involved it can cause problems. You should be able to conceive and have healthy babies after finishing treatment. If you have any problems, you doctor should know about the TB. It is a simple test at that point to check for tubal damage. I had TB myself at 16 and have had no problems since. Hope you do as well!

M 20 yr female TB lymphadenitis. Prescribed R-cinex:Rifampin 450mg & isoniazid 300mg & pyzina 1000mg. Ethambutol not prescribed is my treatment correct?

TB treatment: We usually use Ethambutol as part of this regimen in case the TB is resistant to either Rifampin or isoniazid. If your doctor already knows which drugs the big is susceptible to, or if resistance rates are very low in your area, leave out the Ethambutol may be the correct treatment. You should discuss this issue with the prescribing doctor.
