I can understand your concern.
PE stands for pleural effusion. That means there is abnormally high amounts of fluid collection in the pleural space whixh surrounds the lungs.
TB stands for tuberculosis. Its a infection by a bacteria. The most common cause of PE today is TB.
Therefore PE is a consequence of TB.
Kindly consult a pulmonologist in person for further evaluation and management.
