The sebaceous gland through the centuries: A difficult path to independence

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

From the Classical Age to date, a lot of progress has been made in Medicine, but skin diseases only reached their autonomy during the eighteenth century. Before this period, cutaneous disorders were only considered as materia peccans, that means a sign of an internal disequilibrium of humors, which need to be evacuated. Cutaneous pores were seen just as the way by which the body could purify itself.
