Title: Being tested for tuberculosis (Links to English resource)
Summary: Sometimes people can become infected with tuberculosis (TB) germs without getting the actual disease. The Mantoux test, also called the tuberculin skin test, can show if the person has ever been infected by TB germs. TB infection does not mean the person has the disease, but if someone has been infected there is a chance they might get sick with TB in the future.
