Hello,

Nowadays.TB can easily be cured by multiple ATT regimens. Your condition is not at all dangerous.

You can not infect others as you are not shedding AFB bacteria in your sputum as revealed by your sputum examination.

As far as the difference between minimal TB and TB is concerned, it has less intensity and does not have clinically overt features.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
