Abstract: Both primary and reactivation tuberculosis may present as an acute process and mimic community-acquired pneumonia. Tuberculosis should always be included in the initial differential diagnosis, and suspicion should be heightened by a variety of clinical and epidemiologic clues, as well as by multiple underlying conditions. This article reviews the pathophysiology, risk factors, and clinical manifestations of acute presentations of tuberculosis.
