Prof. Edoardo Maragliano


PROF. EDOARDO MARAGLIANO, the famous Italian physician, whose death recently occurred in his ninety-first year, was born at Genoa on June 1, 1849. He received his medical education at Naples, where his principal teachers were Salvatore Tommasi and Arnaldo Cantani, and qualified in 1870 with a thesis “of exceptional merit” on some diseases of the nerve centres. He started his career by being assistant to Prof. Enrico de Renzi at Naples for a few years, and then became lecturer in general pathology at Genoa from 1877 to 1881. He was then elected professor of clinical medicine at Genoa, and held this post for forty-three years.
