Subj: [kl] Re:Beethoven's death certificate
Date: Wed, 6 Jan 1999 14:22:09 -0500

Someone posted Beethoven's cause(s) of death and there seemed to be a
lot going on...but as I look at this with a pathologist's eye, it all is
one disease, ie, chronic hepatitis. This causing cirhhosis, jaundince,
liver failure and enteritis. So even though he is dead, the disease
that killed him isn't as bad as you may have thought.
