Alain Touwaide
Two Greek manuscripts have preserved a short treatise On the Diagnosis of Kidney Pathologies and Their Treatment attributed to Galen. In the present article, I study the content of this work and suggest that it may describe the effect of gout on the kidneys, unless it describes pseudogout, that is, chondrocalsinosis of kidneys. On this basis, I suggest that the treatise is not by Galen, but by the 15th-century Byzantine physician Dêmêtrios Pepagômenos.
