Microscope caseous necrosis in TB !!

1) in the book, they say that the center of the granuloma contain caseous necrosis.

But the granuloma is made of epithelioid cells, giant cells, and theres actually necrosis of these cells or lung tissue? does this affect the lung alveoli or not? im asking cz necrosis is of the immune ceels and not of the lung.

2) even in patients who are asymptomatic, do we have granulomas?

thank you so much
