Tuberculin Skin Test Reporting

When a clinician thinks a patient may have latent tuberculosis, it should be reported. This includes most patients who:

  • Have a positive Tuberculin Skin Test
  • Have been a contact of an active tuberculosis case

The reporting form should be completed by any clinician who performed the Tuberculin Skin Test.

To report a Tuberculin Skin Test, you can either:
