Editor's preface
Mot du rédacteur en chef

Tuberculosis, once relegated to the past, at least in North America, is resurging in a variety of high-risk groups. We mark World Tuberculosis Day (Mar. 24) with reports from the front lines of TB medicine (pages 789, 799 and 821) and the début of our Clinical Basics series on this disease (page 837).
