Lijecnicki vjesnik, during its 125 years long existence, played important role in promotion of History of medicine on our territory. The first articles, which appeared at the end of 19th century, advanced soon to endeavours for affirmation of History of medicine to academic and research discipline. The most important in this respect are texts written by medical history founders and pioneers such as Lujo Thaller, Lavoslav Glesinger and Mirko Drazen Grmek. The topics ranged from antiquity to 20th century covering general historical, culturological, anthropological, epistemological and bioethical dimension of medicine. Professional medical historians wrote greater part of medical historical articles but also physicians of other disciplines participated. Most intensive period in publishing of medical historical articles corresponds with that of the most intensive efforts in establishing the history of medicine as scientific and scholarly discipline. Pages of Lijecnicki vjesnik have fixed not only struggle for status of this discipline but are chronology of actions aimed to include the results of History of medicine to unique knowledge fund in a context of modern medicine and science.
