About

Overview

Tuberculosis infections have plagued mankind for many centuries. Once known as consumption because of the way it appeared to consume the human body, it is today a treatable illness if detected early. However, it poses a new threat worldwide as it attacks people whose immune systems are weakened by HIV. This book contains a timeline of important dates in the treatment of TB, as well as stories on famous victims such as members of the Bronte family and Eleanor Roosevelt.
