Despite the proven infectious nature of tuberculosis, new data have recently appeared on the autoimmune component in the course of tuberculosis infection. This chapter discusses the currently known signs of autoimmune inflammation in tuberculosis infection, including both clinical and immunological manifestations. Taking into account the available data on the possible triggering effect of M. tuberculosis on the development of the autoimmune process, the correction of these autoimmune complications may be a key moment in prescribing therapy and in predicting the low efficacy of the treatment of the disease.
