Lenin's Death

Lenin's Death

In this undated photo, Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin is seen on his death bed. Syphilis probably didn't kill Lenin. Stress, on the other hand, didn't help, and poison may have done him in. That's the conclusion of a doctor and a historian who examined medical records and other evidence for an annual University of Maryland School of Medicine conference on the deaths of famous figures. UCLA neurologist Dr. Harry Vinters and Russian historian Lev Lurie reviewed Lenin's records for an annual University of Maryland School of Medicine conference that opens Friday, May 4, 2012 in Baltimore on famous people's deaths.
