Personal medical issues are likely not in the purview of a visa immigration site. :blush: Consider contacting your personal health care professional.

No it will not matter as long as there is not a history of violence nor self inflicted injuries.

The inquiry is in regard to the Immigration and Nationality act 212(a)(1)(A)(iii)(I) and (II). An immigrant medical examination conducted by an appointed panel physician is quite relevant to an immigration discussion board.

No it will not matter as long as there is not a history of violence nor self inflicted injuries.

Thanks.

Please start your own topic instead of asking your question in someone else's. It will get you faster responses and not derail the thread. :)

He will get a skin test as this is a protocol for kids regardless of history. You shouldn't have any problems if he was treated and the test is negative. Bring any doctor's reports with you. You will be questioned on his medical history.

How do the TB TIs using Cultures and Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) affect the TB evaluation in children?

To help detect TB in children, the TB TIs using Cultures and Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) require that children aged 2 through 14 years undergo a TB skin test if they are medically screened in countries where the TB rate is 20 cases or more per 100,000 population. If the skin test is positive, a chest X-ray is required. If the chest X-ray suggests TB, cultures and three sputum smears are required.

For a sputum smear, a small amount of mucus is collected from deep in the lungs (sputum), smeared on a slide, and viewed under a microscope to look for TB bacteria. A culture involves putting a sputum sample (i.e., a small amount of mucus from deep in the lungs) in a petri dish to see if TB bacteria grows.

Sorry, I evidently misunderstood the intent of your question due to the perceived vagueness of your initial inquiry. I was unsure from what perspective you were coming from, personal confidential medical information or visa-related?.... :blink:

No problem. I should have referenced the law in concern that I was referring to initially. :)
