LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - University of Kansas officials say a student with tuberculosis is expected to make a full recovery.

The university sent an email Monday confirming the case of the disease.

The university says fewer than 50 other individuals who may have been exposed to the infected person have been contacted and will be tested for infections.

Tuberculosis is spread through the air from person to person, when an infected individual is in an enclosed space for a prolonged time.
