Extract

When 15-year-old Sophie Munch was ill with tuberculosis in 1878, her younger brother Edvard (1863-1944) worried that he was the source of her illness.2 It was 4 years before physician scientist Robert Koch would confirm that Mycobacterium tuberculosis was the causative agent. There was still an ongoing debate, especially in northern countries, about whether the origins of tuberculosis were hereditary or infectious. In December 1865, Jean Antoine Villemin (1827-1892) demonstrated its infectiousness in rabbits, but his report was assailed by Herman Pidoux, a leading physician, who was waiting to receive a 10 000 franc prize from the Faculty of Medicine in Paris for his work affirming that tuberculosis was hereditary,3 exacerbated by social conditions such as malnutrition and poor sanitation. Pidoux and others viewed contagion as a prejudice that inspired fear and stigmatized the sick.
