The bloodiest war has not claimed as many lives as tuberculosis. For many centuries it has accompanied humanity. Modern methods of genetic diagnosis revealed traces of tuberculosis in mummies of Egyptian pharaohs. Pulmonary tuberculosis is an infectious disease, the causative agent of which is Mycobacterium tuberculosis or Koch's wand. Even now, with modern advances in medicine, patients die from this disease. Tuberculosis is a chronic infection with a long period of isolation of the pathogen, a variety of clinical manifestations, lesions of various organs and systems [1]. This is a common disease with a predominant lesion of certain systems and organs [1]. The disease is long-term, often with complications, and even now leads to disability deaths [2,3]. Socially disadvantaged persons are one of the risk groups of the disease. This contingent is a little disciplined, has low motivation to any systematic activity, including treatment. People who come from prison, alcohol abusers, drug addicts, unemployed, migrants are especially often ill with tuberculosis [4,5]. Recently, a growing number of patients who secrete strains of mycobacteria resistant to treatment. Biological cure of tuberculosis is impossible, only clinical. It requires great efforts on the part of the doctor and the patient [6-8]. Any disease causes a sick person a lot of negative emotions. Emotions can manifest themselves in external behavior. Situational emotions can “impose” certain actions on a person. Emotions drive action.
