From an analysis of the original correspondence, it has been possible to establish that Karl Marx’s incapacitating skin disease was hidradenitis suppurativa, not ‘boils’ as was universally assumed at the time and since; the psychological effect of this illness on the man and his work appears to have been considerable.
