The Mantoux test is often referred to as the Tuberculosis skin test or the PPD test. It is employed to diagnose latent/asymptomatic tuberculosis (TB) infection in humans. To diagnose tuberculosis infection, a pure protein derivative (PPD) derived from tuberculosis-causing bacteria is injected into the forearm of the patient. A skin reaction that occurs 48-72 hours later serves as the basis for the diagnosis. In a positive Mantoux test, an X-ray of the chest is also indicated.

A latent TB infection might become active; thus, timely diagnosis and treatment are required. Less invasive than conventional TB blood tests in children under 5. Direct interaction with TB infected individuals or immunocompromised people is also advised.
