Were you looking for information about Tuberculosis? Tuberclosis is a common misspelling of tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis is a common and infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It usually attacks the lungs but can also affect the kidneys, spine, and brain. Most people who are infected with tuberculosis (which is spread through the air) do not have symptoms; the bacterium becomes inactive but remains alive in the body and can become active later. About 10 percent of these infected individuals will develop active tuberculosis at some point in their lives.
