Dr. Fernando Saldarini, who is head of the Pulmonology Department, reviews the x-ray's of a five-year-old patient who is suspected to be suffering from tuberculosis at the Santojanni Public Hospital, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 29, 2019. Cases of the "white death" illness, closely linked to poverty, malnutrition and poor housing, have been on the rise since the turn of the decade as Latin America's third largest economy has grappled with repeat recessions and inflation.
