Were you looking for information about Tuberculosis? Tuberculocis is a common misspelling of tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a transmittable infection that is spread through the air from one person to another. It is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis and usually attacks the lungs (but may also infect other organs and parts of the body). Most people who are infected harbor the tuberculosis bacterium without symptoms. Some people with the latent form of the disease can develop active tuberculosis disease if they do not receive treatment, which involves taking several different antibiotics for at least six months.
