Separate chapters discuss the causes of many of Beethovens illnesses, his autopsy and the exhumations.

Following the rediscovery of the original Latin autopsy report in 1970, the author has discovered two faulty translations, which he argues contributed to errors in earlier medical assumptions. New evidence disputes earlier assertions that Beethovens deafness resulted from syphilis. This fascinating account of Beethovens ailments should appeal to Beethoven enthusiasts and to both the medical and music communities.
