Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal. The goal of the Health Department’s TB Control Unit is to interrupt the transmission of active TB within our communities and protect the health of all Monterey County residents.
