Abstract: Tuberculosis (TB) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in developing countries. The incidence of disease has increased in developed countries and according to world health organizations every day in India more than 20000 people develop the disease and more than 1000 die from TB.

The age groups from 35-44 and 45-54 are more prone TB bacteria. Young children below 14 years are less susceptible. We did not find any TB patients with HIV infection. In the winter Tuberculosis (TB) represents itself as a major health problem globally, data is gathered quarterly because of different incidence in cold seasons. The chi-square test explains no significance difference between age and sex. The Odds Ratio indicates males are 1.47 times more likely to develop tuberculosis than females.
