A person may develop TB after inhaling Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) bacteria. When TB affects the lungs, the disease is the most contigious, but a person will usually only become sick after close contact with someone who has this type of TB. 

The risk of developing active TB is higher in: 

  • anyone with a weakened immune system
  • anyone who first developed the infection in the past 2–5 years
  • older adults and young children
  • people who use injected recreational drugs
  • people who have not received appropriate treatment for TB in the past
