Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To most doctors, the name Yersin is known only for its eponymous connection with the plague bacillus, Yersinia pestis. In Vietnam, where he lived for over 50 years, Alexandre Yersin is a legendary figure. On the 100th anniversary of the identification of the plague bacillus, a review of this extraordinary man and his controversial discovery is timely.
