What causes atypical tuberculosis ?
My 70 years old father in law was diagnosed with atypical tuberculosis 10 years back. He tried the antibiotics but they made him sick and he discontinued them. Now, he has started coughing all the time and coughing up copious amounts of white filmy mucous. Hypertension and lung disease are his only issues. He has had cancer 4 times but his last bout of brain cancer is the only one that has been treated with radiation. Could the radiation make his lung disease worse?
