Figure 1

This cartoon depicts five Greeks representing the cardinal signs of inflammation — heat, redness, swelling, pain and loss of function — which are as appropriate today as they were when first described by Celsus more than 2000 years ago. This figure was commissioned by D.A.W. and drawn by P. Cull for the Medical Illustration Department at St Bartholomew's Medical College.
