Were you looking for information about Tuberculosis? Tuberculos is a common misspelling of tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that could be fatal if left untreated. The chronic disease, which is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is spread through the air from one person to another and usually attacks the lungs (but may also infect the kidneys, spine, and brain). Most people have latent tuberculosis, where the bacteria become inactive but remain alive in the body and become active later. Treatment usually involves taking several different antibiotics for at least six months.
