The author delves into the historical details of Chopins fascinating life looking for tell-tale clues that might shed light on the illness that began when the composer was just a teenager. The various hypotheses to explain this malady are discussed in detail and a conclusion proposed.

The author, an experienced physician and Chopin scholar, is now collaborating with the Polish team of investigators who plan another attempt to gain access to Chopins long-preserved heart now located in Warsaw.
