They represent key scientists in the areas of pathologic anatomy, microbiology, and physiology. ■■ Pathologic Anatomy Morgagni and Laënnec, almost a century apart, made major contributions to the field of pathologic anatomy. Morgagni (Fig. 1-14), who lived in the 18th century and was a student of Valsalva, veered away from the undisciplined case reports of his predecessors. Instead, he adopted a logical system for relating findings at autopsy to their clinical manifestations. At age 79, he published a compilation of his lifelong experience in his famous work, De Sedibus et Causis Morborum per Anatomen Indagatis.

1-1). As an individual, he exemplified the caring physician who kept accurate records, made cautious inferences, and relied more on nature, rest, and diet than on drugs for treatment. His name has been immortalized by affixing it to three major components of Greek medicine, even though none appears to be the work of a single individual. The first is the Hippocratic corpus, a collection of about 70 works that includes case reports, textbooks, lectures, and notebooks. The collection contains a description of Cheyne–Stokes breathing and the use of Hippocratic succussion for the diagnosis of fluid and air in the pleural cavity.

3,4 His construct was largely teleologic. Unfortunately, it was so convincing that even though it was ultimately proved to be fanciful, it sufficed to retard scientific progress for a millennium and a half. Galen was a talented individual who was well educated, well read, and well positioned in society to popularize his beliefs. Moreover, his concepts fit well into the tenets of Christianity, which was then in its ascendency; to controvert his authority was tantamount to blasphemy. Among his long-lasting, albeit erroneous, postulates, were the following: invisible pores in the ventricular septum that enabled the bulk of the blood to flow from the right ventricle to the left ventricle, thereby bypassing the lungs; a diminutive pulmonary circulation that served only to nourish the lungs; and two-way traffic in the pulmonary veins that enabled inspired air and “effluent waste vapors” to go their respective ways (Fig.
