Is Scrofula and Tuberculosis the same?

I came across this in my History Revision and I am not sure if they are similar diseases or are the same thing.

Thanks in advance.

Heya, I'm going to put this in the Biology forum for you as you should get more responses there. You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you! http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=129

Tuberculosis is most often thought of as an infectious disease of the lung, however can occur in any part of the body (especially in those with a weakened immune system e.g. HIV/AIDS). It is referred to as scrofula when it occurs in the lymph nodes of the neck.

The bacteria involved is Mycobacterium tuberculosis (in most cases).
