Abstract

Giovanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720) shows a particular interest in urological and nephrological diseases, especially evident in a course of lectures held at Studium Urbis in 1696-97, which reflected his vast knowledge and familiarity with various important texts devoted to urology and nephrology.

This interest is further documented in commentaries on articles on nephrological diseases in his Repertorium medicum (a sort of medical dictionary written between 1672 and his death). Lancisi's quoting medical authorities clarifies the clinical answers he gave in some of his unpublished Consulti concerning nephrological pathologies
