Resumen:
Endogenous infection and exogenous reinfection are two mecha- nisms responsible for the reactivation or regeneration of active tu- berculosis (TB) in individuals who have experienced prior active TB infections. We provide a brief review of a classical reinfection model, introduce a more general model, and include some new results. We conclude with a snapshot on the use of reinfection models in the study of the evolution of TB.
