Tuberculosis (TB) Skin Testing

A TB skin test requires a minimum of two visits:

  • First visit: Skin testing using the intradermal PPD (purified protein derivative).
  • Second visit: Follow up for reading and results.

Follow-up for TB Patients

If your TB test is positive, you’ll need to get a chest x-ray. After a clinical evaluation, you may receive medication, follow-up lab testing, and additional testing.
