Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern let me tell you something that the MT test for the TB infection is not the sole criteria other supportive positive finding would be there at least the most important is clinical findings, now looking to the over all mode of action of these two MT and Rubella they could interact with each other, avoid the idea of pregnancy in infective sate of TB, hope this information helps you, have a nice day.
