In brief: Tuberculosis

Ptb or pulmonarytb , when a child is infected , it usually heals and you call it primary complex.
During reinfection, it usually involves the upper lobe of your lungs creating cavities and spreading throughout the lungfield depending on your resistance to infection.It could last for months or years.
