Someone who's been infected with M. tuberculosis will develop tuberculosis.

Fact

Only about 10% of infected people will develop tuberculosis at some point in their lives: 5% immediately after infection and 5% up to 50 years later. Someone who's been infected is most likely to simply remain infected without becoming ill or contagious.
