Pulmoanry fibrosis is a term used to describe any excessive fibrous tissue in the lungs tissue though this process is idiopathic but can have related disease too. Tuberculosis
could be one of them which can cause Pulmonary fibrosis
. TB is caused by an organism and the potential to spread to other is high if its an open case, but the marker(the organism it self) if present in the sputum can be contagious. If the marker is present in blood(detected by elisa
) then he might not be contagious. If the PF is related to TB then treating TB will halt PF but the damage can not be reversed. Hope the answer partly answer your quarries.
Please ask if you have any more quarries.
