Abstract

Gentile da Foligno was an influential professor and teacher of medicine atthe Universities of Bologna, Padua, Siena and Perugia in the fi rst pa rt of the 14th century. He was one of the first physicians to perform human dissection. He authored many important texts and commentaries, among which isthe Consilla, a collection of therapeutic advices for many diseases. He made a commentary on Carmina de urinarum iudiciis (Songs of urinary judgements) and to De pulsibus (About pulses) composed by Egidius Corbaliensis. Thiswork is more than a commentary: it is a text attempting to conceptualise the physiology of urine formation. According to his writing, urine associated to the blood passes 'per poros euritides' (through the porous tubules) ofthe kidney and is then delivered to the bladder. Commenting and explainingthe writing on De pulsibus, he stressed the importance of heart disease onmodulating the colour and output of urine and the relationship between fast pulse rate and urine output. For the originality of his thought and for the conceptualization of the relationship between pulse rate and urine characteristic, Gentile da Foligno could be indicated as the 'first' cardionephrologist in the history of medicine.
