Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, an acid-fast bacillus (AFB). TB is one of the most common diseases worldwide. Rapid and accurate detection is important to prevent spread of the disease and for initiation of appropriate chemotherapy. Typically, TB infections produce a wide range of tissue changes including granulomatous inflammation. This inflammation may present as caseous necrosis, aggregates of epithelioid cells, and frequently multinucleated Langhans
