Tuberculosis and HIV

Jan 20, 2007

Dr. Bob,

I keep reading stuff about tuberculosis and HIV, but I am very confused.

About 13 years ago, I got tested for TB after I moved from one state to another. The test was positive and I went through the entire course of medication. I know that I will always test positive for TB.

I have had a 12 negative HIV test. Is there any chance that my TB from 13 years ago could delay antibody production?
