Abstract Hieronymus Mercurialis was a renowned medical teacher and practitioner in 16th-century Italy who occupied the chair of medicine at Padua. He was the author of numerous treatises on subjects that, in modern times, would include pediatrics, sports medicine, dermatology, gynecology, otology, ophthalmology, toxicology, epidemic diseases, pharmacology, and general medicine.
