Primary complex in 9 month baby is indicative of Primary Tuberculous complex. Thereby, doctors have done your xray to check whether you all suffering from active or latent tuberculosis in your chest so as to be sure that the 9 month babt has contracted tuberculosis from you people. However, the xary findings you have mentioned ie. PD reaction & Ath aorta are not suggestive of Tuberculosis.
