SUMMARY (transl. English): This book analyses how late medieval physicians performed differential diagnosis, which aims to distinguish between diseases that appear similar and is a key approach to medical practice, based on semiology and nosology.
Using several medical practice books from the 14th and 15th centuries, the book examines the diseases subject to differential diagnosis, the lexical field and the place associated with this approach. It then analyses the methods proposed to distinguish between diseases of similar appearance, the signs used and the authors' ancient and medieval sources. Finally, this study explores the therapeutic, ethical and prognostic issues of differential diagnosis.

News from Italy
Our Italian Colleague Prof. Beccarelli, main organizer of the International Meeting in Milan, asked me to distribute the following information:
The grip of the pandemic does not seem to be easing, but hope is the last to die, and we are planning initiatives for the success of the September congress in Milan.
Over the last few days, we have received requests to postpone the delivery date of the entries for the Pier Paolo Daniele International Competition, the deadline for submission expired on 31th December 2021, due to the very limited access to archives or libraries because of Covid. The Council of the Italian Academy of the History of Pharmacy decided to postpone the submission of the papers by 3 months (until 31th March 2022).
I would therefore ask you to inform all associations of Pharmacy History of this additional opportunity to participate. Thanking you for your availability and wishing us to meet soon, I send my best regards and wish you a year full of satisfaction.
I seriously hope we will be able to personally meet in Milan and please, encourae as many scholars as possible to participate at the essay contest!
