Giovanni Battista Morgagni was an 18th-century Italian anatomist known for his significant contributions to studies in pathology. He is best-remembered for his book ‘De Sedibus’, or ‘The Causes of Diseases’ – an extensive treatise on the origins and transmission of diseases. The Printing of Mind and Man says of this work:

“The books include a number of brilliant descriptions of new diseases, some of which have remained classics until our own day, particularly those of the heart, blood vessels, lungs, and throat. He described syphilitic tumours in the brain, recorded a case of heart-block (“Stokes Adams Disease”), identified the clinical features of pneumonia with consolidation of the lungs, described lesions in angina pectoris, acute yellow atrophy of the liver, tuberculosis of the kidney…”

 

This book has become one of the foundational books of all medicine, not just pathological anatomy. According to Garrison-Morton,

one of the most important [works] in the history of medicine”.

In fact, Norman supports this as well by stating,

“‘De sedibus’, regarded as one of the most important books in the history of medicine, established a new era in medical research.”

Per ‘Heirs of Hippocrates’:

“Morgagni’s contribution to the understanding of disease may well rank with the contributions of Vesalius in anatomy and Harvey in physiology.”
