Tuberculosis - Causes and Risk Factors

​The main risk factor would be exposure to a person who has active tuberculosis infection of the lungs/airways. The infected person’s cough expels respiratory droplets that contain tuberculosis and infection is contracted when this is inadvertently inhaled. When exposure occurs in a crowded setting or in enclosed spaces with poor ventilation, the risk of infection increases.
