  • Historical micronutrient psychiatry: descriptive analysis of patients with
           pellagra admitted to the "San Lazzaro" asylum in Reggio Emilia (Italy) in
           the decade 1901-1910

    • Authors: Luca Pingani; Anna Garagnani, Mattia Marchi, Chiara Bombardieri, Gian Maria Galeazzi
      Abstract: This study aims at describing the socio-demographic and clinical characteristics of the patients affected by pellagra and admitted to the “San Lazzaro” psychiatric asylum (Reggio Emilia, Italy) from 1901 to 1910 besides exploring possible gender differences for the collected information. Data were collected from the admission register and clinical records of those patients who were admitted to the San Lazzaro Psychiatric Hospital receiving a diagnosis of pellagra at their first admission. The pellagrous patient population was characterised by a higher rate of hospitalisation for women (64.3%) and the number of hospitalised patients suffering from pellagra gradually decreased from 1901 (78; 8.3%) to 1910 (8;0.7%). The most common profession for men admitted with pellagra was farmer/agricultural labourer, while most of the women were housewives. A characteristic shared by both the male and female population of inpatients was very high rate of illiteracy: only one patient was recorded as being able to read and write. The generic diagnosis of “mental illness from pellagra” was predominant (70%), while “dementia from pellagra” accounts for 17.85% of the admission diagnoses: no statistically significant differences between men and women were found in the frequency of diagnosis. Half of the patients, both men and women, died while being inpatients. This study confirms previous findings about the case mix of pellagra patients admitted to psychiatric hospital at the beginning of the last century in northern Italy and highlights the significance of the relationship of psychiatry with other medical disciplines and the sociocultural milieu.

  • The “Two Camps” Competition: the 1894 Hong Kong Plague in Two
           English Medical Journals

    • Authors: Ka-wai Fan
      Abstract: Scholars have paid much attention to discussing who was first to discover the plague bacillus in 1894, Kitasato Shibasaburō or Alexandre Yersin. This paper, using publications as they appeared chronologically in The Lancet and the British Medical Journal (BMJ), demonstrates that two camps competed with each other to report the news and findings, as well as to express their standpoints. One camp included Shibasaburō Kitasato, James Lowson and The Lancet, while the other included Alexandre Yersin, James Centlie and the BMJ. This paper concludes that when discussing who was first to discover the plague bacillus, the historical facts should be made clear, especially the “two camps” competition. The roles and publications of James Lowson and James Cantlie in the controversial debate on the discovery of the plague bacillus should not be neglected.

  • How Italian nurses perceive nursing leadership twenty years after its
           establishment: an historical observational perception study

    • Authors: Elsa Vitale; Vito Galatola
      Abstract: The nursing manager role and the function that he has in health organizations is a topic that has become increasingly important in recent years. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact and perception of nursing management on nursing staff investigating: human resource, development and training, human resource management, work organization leadership, and listening. The research was conducted through questionnaires administered online through social networks as Facebook and Instagram. A total of 739 nurses participated in the study. The data collected show a very low level of perception of the figure of the nursing manager and very often this perception does not differ considering the two groups of interviewees. About twenty years after his birth, the “distance” between nurses and nursing management still exists.

  • A retrospective study on the artificial mummification of the Blessed
           Andrea da Montereale (AD 1479)

    • Authors: Luca Ventura; Mirko Traversari, Noemi Sabatini, Elisabetta Cilli, Giacomo Telera, Maurizio Ripani
      Abstract: Andrea da Montereale was a 15th Century Augustinian monk from the inner Abruzzo region, central Italy. We investigated the preservation mechanisms of his body by retrospective survey of textual sources and reports from the Canonical Recognitions. The partially mummified body of the Blessed Andrea da Montereale revealed indisputable evidence of artificial mummification (excerebration and evisceration cuts, absence of internal organs) at visual inspection. The cadaver features emphasized by the hagiographers (vivid colors, absence of putrefaction or bad smelling for thirty days after death, without balsams treatments) sounds like an unrequested explanation for the body miraculous preservation. To the best of our knowledge, this represents the twelfth known case of an embalmed body in Catholic Religion, the tenth in Central Italy, and the second one documented in the Abruzzo region.

  • The international dialogue of human sciences

    • Authors: Marta Licata
      Abstract: Internationalization is today more than ever a crucial process to spread the Italian historical medical tradition and above all to make our scientific sensitivity in the field of human sciences known even beyond our borders. This is certainly not a one-way process; this openness allows us, in fact, to welcome scientific contributions from far away, capable of increasing, with an international scope, the dialogue around historical medical knowledge.

  • A review on medicine in medieval times and the multicultural origin and
           development of the Salerno Medical School

    • Authors: Sha Ha
      Abstract: The Islamic medical knowledge had a threefold origin: the classical Greek and Roman teaching of Hippocrates, Dioscorides and Galen (whose works were saved in the Byzantine libraries of the conquered territories of Egypt and the Near East), the studies by Persian scholars from the Sasanian ‘Academy of Gondishapur’ and the ‘Ayurveda’ precepts of the sacred Sanskrit texts contained in temples of the Hindus Valley. All those works had been translated into Arabic in Baghdad’s ‘House of Wisdom, a great library founded by the Abbasid Caliph al-Mamun in 825 A.D.: those texts were later re-translated into Latin and hand-copied by Benedictine monks in the ‘scriptoria’ of Monte Cassino and other monasteries of Western Europe. The Great Mosque of Uqba, in Kairouan (North Africa) and the Great Mosque of Cordoba (in the Iberian Peninsula) were cultural centers where scientific and philosophical studies flourished and important medical works were produced. The scholars from the ‘Salerno Medical School’, established by Benedictine monks in that Southern Italian city state in 851 A.D., studied those works and contributed to the advancement of medical knowledge in Western Europe. The Chinese knowledge of herbal medicine was indirectly part of these cultural exchanges, following the Arab expansion in Transoxania in the 8th century A.D. What has emerged in more recent times is the contribution by female scholars and medical practitioners to the advancement of medical science in Western Europe during medieval times.

  • Green Pass versus Health Faiths. To travel in confidence with public

    • Authors: Omar Larentis
      Abstract: The Green Pass (EU Digital Covid Certificate) was reconfirmed on 13 June 2022 by the European Parliament as an indispensable tool for coordinating travel safety in Europe. The subject is still debated today, although similar regulations have existed in the Old World since the 15th century. In this letter, we want to briefly recall the means used in the past to regulate the movement of people in different countries, means not different from those used today.

  • From pathologist to surgeon: the surgical tools inventions and techniques
           of Lodovico Brunetti

    • Authors: Giovanni Magno; Fabio Zampieri, Alberto Zanatta
      Abstract: Lodovico Brunetti (1813-1899) was the first professor of pathological anatomy at the University of Padua (1855) and the founder of the current Morgagni Museum of Pathological Anatomy.  His interest in the renewal of rachiotomy techniques through the development of new instruments, still in use today, is well known. Brunetti was also famous for his surgical skills and the invention of different tools used during his operations. A medical-historical research of the literature was carried out to deepen our knowledge on evolution of surgical tools and techniques in the late nineteenth century through the work and ideas of Brunetti. Although he was full professor of Pathological Anatomy, he continued to operate from time to time as a surgeon. Among his surgical procedures, he performed several cystotomies, cataract and rhinoplasty, of which he described in detail the techniques and tools used, paying always particular attention to his current time innovations, for example citing the "Graefe's knife" as an alternative to the keratotome and the "Thompson's screw lithotripter", whose prototype was presented in 1860 for lithotripsy practices. The University preserves several surgical instruments that matches the ones used by Brunetti, along with the different specimens of the Morgagni Museum, which bear witness to the operations made using these tools. His inventions are also still used today, while his ideas reflected the discoveries and innovations that characterized the late nineteenth century, also questioning old techniques and tools, often no longer functional or unsuitable for new innovative procedure that were arising in that period.

  • Parenting, between radicalism and ideology

    • Authors: Linda Alfano; Liliana Lorettu, Roberta Monteleone, Rosagemma Ciliberti
      Abstract: As has been the case for several years in many countries, in Italy, new continuing forms of family composition, as well as increasingly complex forms of parenting, are sharply taking root. These innovations are often accompanied by criticisms and (pre)conceptions that (in)form our traditional and consolidated way of thinking about the family. Issues related to the right of the child to pursue his or her best interests and the possible functioning of the family constellations with non-genetic links are feeding important ethical questions. The careful analysis of scientific literature suggests freeing oneself from ideological approaches to base assessments and choices on the data available within psychological studies on the phenomenon. The commitment of professionals working with children is to welcome the complexity of today’s families without stigmatizing, pathologizing, or ideologizing.
