Hi,
How are you? What are the symptoms present?  PTB or Pulmonary Tuberculosis is caused by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis and can be easily transmitted through droplet infection  such as coughing or sneezing by an infected person. If the finding was undetermined activity, it is best that additional diagnostic tests such as sputum test or culture be done for definite diagnosis. Treatment  of active PTB is usually with anti-Koch's medicines and outlook is excellent if it is diagnosed early and treatment is begun quickly.  This link may help:http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000077.htm .

It is best that you discuss this with your doctor for proper evaluation.  Take care and do keep us posted.
