Brief revision of our history beside Argentinean medicine:

About La Prensa Medica Argentina:

Buenos Aires, Wednesday 10th June, 1914, was the place and date when a new South American scientific journal was born. Its aims, as can be read on the cover of the Issue I of year I, was since then "to contribute primarily to stimulate observation and research and to disseminate the scientific knowledge that is renovated each day, throughout the medical class, and secondly, tend to prestige in foreign countries the national and international medical science". The name of the journal since that time to the present day is "La Prensa Médica Argentina" (Argentinean Medical Press). Its first directors were Luis Guemes, Gregorio Aráoz Alfaro and Daniel J. Cranwell distinguished doctors of that time, and its first editor was Dr. Arsenio Guidi Buffarini a prominent book publisher. The journal "La Prensa Medica Argentina" included in its pages, from then to the present, the most important works of our doctors and also selected foreign contributions. To go through its pages covering almost a hundred years of the Argentinean medical press, means to make contact with the most salient events of our country medical history, written by the most notable doctors of the country and with major contributions from prominent foreign-doctors.
