Editor's preface
Mot du rédacteur en chef
La tuberculose, que l'on croyait reléguée au passé, du moins en Amérique du Nord, réapparaît dans divers groupes à risque élevé. Nous soulignons la Journée mondiale de la tuberculose (le 24 mars) par la publication de rapports issus des premières lignes de la lutte médicale contre la tuberculose (pages 789, 799 et 821), ainsi que du premier article de notre série Principes cliniques portant sur cette maladie (page 837).
