Testing for tuberculosis: the TST - Pamphlet


Image for document cover.


The tuberculosis germ is detected by a tuberculin skin test known as the TST or Mantoux test. This test is neither a treatment nor a vaccine. It shows whether you have ever been in contact with the tuberculosis germ, and whether you are at risk of developing the disease later on.
