Tuberculosis is a well-known disease which, along with many other infectious ailments, has led to much morbidity and mortality across the globe. The approach to this condition has been to quarantine these patients from the community to prevent spread of the disease. Nevertheless, the development of antituberculous medication during the 1940s dramatically brought it under much better control [1, 2].
It remains one of the world’s deadliest infectious diseases, and with the emergence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) more than three decades ago, there has been a resurgence of tuberculosis. In fact, the presence of tuberculosis in any patient today is an indication to obtain an HIV test as the two diseases together will significantly complicate the management of these clients [1, 2].
