The lung, primary entry site of the tuberculosis (TB) bacillus into the body, is the organ most commonly affected by clinical TB. The initial infection occurs by the inhalation of droplet nuclei which, because of their size, bypass the bronchial mucociliary protective barrier. Settling in an alveolus, a single acid-fast bacillus (AFB) carrying droplet nucleus is adequate to initiate a primary focus of infection [1].
