Signs and Symptoms of Tuberculosis

Typical signs of tuberculosis are:

  • Chronic or persistent cough and sputum production. If the disease is at an advanced stage the sputum will contain blood.
  • Fatigue.
  • Lack of appetite.
  • Weight loss.
  • Fever.
  • Night sweats.

Tuberculosis can mimic many forms of disease and must always be considered if no firm diagnosis has been made.
