Steatoma Through the Early Medical History

Arch Dermatol. 2010;146(4):417. doi:10.1001/archdermatol.2010.33

Skin diseases become nosological entities mainly after the Hellenistic period (fourth-first century BC). Among the skin lesions appearing in ancient medical texts of the ancient Greek and Greco-Roman literature, steatoma, a term that exists even nowadays, appears to have preoccupied numerous authors: references may be found in Celsus (first century AD), Galen (second century AD), Antyllus (second century AD), Oribasius (fourth century AD), Aëtius of Amida (sixth century AD), and Paulus Aegineta (seventh century AD).
