Notes

Lang: Latin Note: First published in 1761, the above work is one of the most important books in the history of medicine. Morgagni was professor of anatomy at Padua for over 56 years, and is regarded as "the true founder of pathological anatomy" (Morton). A monumental work which established the organ concept of disease and made pathological anatomy a major medical discipline. In exhaustive detail Morgagni reports on nearly 700 cases and autopsies. Several conditions are described for the first time including classic descriptions of mitral stenosis, heart block (Adams-Stokes Syndrome), angina pectoris, syphilitic aneurysm, and tuberculosis of the kidney. "Morgagni's contribution to the understanding of disease may well rank with the contributions of Vesalius in anatomy and Harvey in physiology" (Eimas)
