What is Mantoux Tuberculosis Test?

A qualitative skin test known as the Mantoux test is used to identify in vivo Mycobacterium tuberculosis sensitization that is either caused by an active infection or a previous infection. Additionally, it is utilised to evaluate the prophylactic and effectiveness of BCG immunisation. For children, healthcare workers, those at high risk of infection, and people who are suspected of having tuberculosis, the Mantoux test is a standard screening procedure.

The Mantoux Test cannot determine if an infection is active or latent and cannot make a conclusive diagnosis. To confirm a diagnosis of an active TB infection, additional tests such a sputum smear, culture, and chest X-rays, among others, are required if a positive reaction develops.

Why it is done?

A skin test called a Mantoux test is performed to identify Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (TB). It is used to assess any skin immunological response by a person who may have been or is currently being exposed to the pathogen.

You must take the test to find out if you have Mycobacterium tuberculosis if you have any or all of the symptoms listed below.

Evening sweats
• Strange weight loss
• Tiredness
• Fever
• Colds
• Appetite loss
• A persistent and protracted cough
• Sputum with blood
• Aches when breathing

• Bloody coughing
• A persistent cough lasting longer than three weeks

What is the procedure for Mantoux Tuberculosis Test?

In order to do a Mantoux screening, 0.1 mL of a liquid containing 5 TU (tuberculin units) of PPD is injected into the skin's top layer (intradermal), which is the layer beneath the skin's surface on the forearm. A portion of the pure protein isolated from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the organism that causes tuberculosis, is known as tuberculin. Typically, it is administered distant from the veins in a region of the skin with no anomalies.

If the injection was performed correctly, a pale and noticeable elevation of the skin with a diameter of 6 to 10 mm should be seen. If a mantoux test is positive, the doctor will treat you and prescribe particular medication for 6 to 9 months if you have the condition.

How does one prepare for the test? 

There is no need to fast before taking the Mantoux screening test. Additionally, no additional specific preparations are ever needed for the test. Maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating right, and please tell your doctor about all of the medications you are taking as well as any herbs, foods, or medications to which you may be allergic.
