Excerpt from Consumption, What It Is and What to Do About It Tuberculosis is a disease caused by a germ or tiny plant called the tubercle bacillus. This germ enters the body usually by way of the mouth and goes to the lungs, or elsewhere and then grows and causes the disease tuberculosis. When the disease is in the lungs it is known as pulmonary tubercu losis, consumption, or phthisis. The germ may go to any part of the body and there cause disease. Pott's Disease or tuberculosis of the Spine or hump back; hip disease, white swelling of the knee or ankle; lupus, tuberculosis of the Skin, scrofula, tu berculosis of glands, and tuberculosis of the spe cial organs, such as the eye, ear, nose, throat, kidneys, etc., are all manifestations of this disease. No matter where located, tuberculosis is always the same and due to the same cause. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
