Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Although the number of TB cases has decreased over the past decades, mainly in high economic countries, it is still an important public health problem due to recently emerging bacterial strains, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, that are not responsive to commonly used drugs.
