Were you looking for information about Tuberculosis? Tuberculoza is a common misspelling of tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis, a chronic bacterial infection, is spread through the air from one person to another. It is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a bacterium that usually attacks the lungs but may also infect any part of the body such as the kidneys, spine, and brain. Most people who are infected with this bacterium do not have symptoms (known as latent tuberculosis), but about 1 in 10 of these people may eventually develop active tuberculosis, which, if left untreated, could be fatal.
