Were you looking for information about Tuberculosis? Tuberculoma is a common misspelling of tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis is a common, contagious bacterial infection that is transmitted through the air. It usually attacks the lungs but may also infect other parts of the body, such as the kidneys, spine, and brain. Most infected people have the latent form of the disease and do not develop symptoms, but active tuberculosis can cause fever, coughing up blood, and chest pain (and may even be fatal). Treatment involves taking several different antibiotics for at least six months; in most cases, tuberculosis can be cured with medication.
