Tuberculosis - (from the Greek. Fθίσις - tuberculosis, exhaustion and Greek. Ιατρεία - treatment) - a branch of clinical medicine that studies the causes, patterns and mechanisms of tuberculosis, the pathological processes caused by it in the human body and methods of prevention, diagnosis and treatment .

Pulmonology (from the Latin pulmo (pulmonis) - lung and Greek logos - doctrine) - a branch of clinical medicine that studies diseases of the respiratory system: trachea, bronchi, lungs and pleura. Pulmonology separated from tuberculosis and oncology in the second half of the twentieth century into an independent branch of medicine, which was facilitated by the increase in the incidence of bronchitis and other chronic non-specific lung diseases (NCDs).
