wen a person has AIDS,will his tuberculosis will affect people with close contact with him?

Response from Dr. Young

With or without HIV/AIDS, pulmonary (lung) tuberculosis is very contagious. Other types of TB (like peritoneal or lymph node TB), is generally not contagious. Once on stable treatment for TB, the risk of transmission of TB is essentially eliminated.

Hope this helps, BY
