In brief: Infection of CNS
Although tuberculosis may start in the lungs, it can also involve multiple body organ systems.
When the infection gets into spinal fluid, it creates a type of meningitis that is a true medical emergency, and can be associated with a rather poor outcome if not treated in a timely fashion.
