Primary complex vs. PTB : LUSENET : Marin General Hospital Medical Staff : One Thread

I'm wondering why a child with primary complex cannot infect another child while an adult with a Pulmonary tuberculosis can infect another person or even a child. The question is, primary complex is the same as PTB, how come it is not contagious among children, since PTB and primary complex has the same etiologic agent
