What are the signs and symptoms of the infection?

Most cases of this infection can cause:

  • fever
  • night sweats
  • loss of appetite
  • weight loss
  • a cough, which may produce bloody phlegm
  • swollen lymph nodes or "glands"
  • fatigue or exhaustion
  • Other symptoms may occur if the infection spreads outside of the lungs, depending on where the infection goes. For example, seizures and vomiting can occur with a brain infection. Pain may occur if the infection gets into the bones. Blood may be seen in the urine if the infection gets into the kidneys.
