Overview

As AIDS has most recently taught us, a rare disease can surface without warning and spread like wildfire. Who mans the rampart against such onslaughts?

This is the second of two collections that bring together the best of Berton Roueche's ANNALS OF MEDICINE narratives.

Originally published in The New Yorker magazine, the stories are classics of literary and medical lore.
