I am a 34 year old male, and I met my uncle in the ICU today, who is suffering from central nervous system tuberculosis. I met him for ten minutes, and I talked and shook hands. Now, I am worried about getting infected from him. Is CNS tuberculosis a communicable disease? What are the chances of me being infected? Please help me.

Thank you doctor,
I forgot to mention that initially he was diagnosed with pneumonia, and later a CT and MRI concluded it as CNS TB. So, probably he might have had a lung infection.
