What are some diseases similar to tuberculosis and could be mistaken as Tuberculosis?

So I am researching tuberculosis, and I have to answer the question:

If it isn't your exact disease, what else could it be?

So essentially I have to find diseases with the same signs and symptoms, ones that may act in the same way or cause your body to look the same way as tuberculosis.

I then have to talk about how they are similar and why. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    So other mycobacterium would look the same on stains:

    Mycobacterium bovis

    Mycobacterium kansasii

    and other mycobacteria

    Other bacteria can cause similar lung disease (but look different on stain and culture):

    Nocardia

    Rhodococcus equii

    and other bacteria
