FRAGILE The view of Keiichiro Kishi, a pathologist

MEGUMI Saburo / Original author: KUSAMIZU Bin

Manga published in book form, in magazine [Japan]

KISHI Keiichiro is a medical specialist / pathologist using biopsy / autopsy data to diagnose the causes of disease. A clinician par excellence, he performs precise diagnoses without meeting his patients face-to-face, yet an eccentric man as well who has frequent run-ins with clinicians who undervalue the data. This rare clinician-as-protagonist work dramatically depicts bittersweet themes of disease and patienthood.
