The reader of this issue will travel from a gulag in Siberia to a psychiatric hospital in Moscow, visit a launching camp for Auschwitz and the venerable Cook County Hospital of Chicago, and undergo exposure to migraines, cholera, ergotism, and tuberculosis. Encounter beautiful art, question the use of acronyms in medicine, discover Argentinian tangos inspired by disease, and see a battered wife get the last word in our fall issue.
