Also I was having vasculitis so I had to take azoran tablets close t 2 years. But now Its stopped from last 5-8 months. I will be going for mantoux test after few days. Will it result in positive??

    Mantous test will always be positive for people who had BCG vaccination for TB. 

    It does no mean you have TB and it showed on your TB Gold quantiferon.

    I had had a BCG and told the doctor, who insisted in giving me a Mantoux test. The reaction was horrendous, and the result meaningless.
