A tuberculosis skin test (called a Mantoux, or PPD skin test) is performed at 18 months of age. There are no side effects. In Arizona, the risk of TB is greater than in other parts of the country due to our proximity to Mexico and the testing is therefore recommended at 1 to 2 years, 4 to 5 years, and 11 to 14 years of age.
