Pulmonologist 's  Response
Hi Sriniwas,

The information provided by you is inadequate. Normally TB is not diagnosed on the basis of TB antibodies test and there are other tests for diagnosing TB. A positive TB IgM test indicates only a recent infection and that`s all. It is only a hypersensitivity reaction to TB proteins and does not indicate the disease. This report should be interpreted along with her clinical condition and any other test if it has been done. You should go back to your gynaecologist or Pulmonologist for correct advice.
