Tuberculosis-primary infection; bacillus first enters body, macrophages engulf microbe causing local inflammatory response, some bacilli travel to lymph nodes (activate type IV hypersensitivity reaction); granuloma and tubercle forms, caseous necrosis and Ghon complexes develop, bacilli can remain dormant for years while remaining asymptomatic, but the person will test positive now.
