Re: Old Disease Names Frequently Found on Death Certificates: What Would They be Called Today? #general #names

My mother collected old books and among them was a Taber's Medical Dictionary from 1930.  It is a treasure.  Many modern terms and obsolete terms are included.  Now if I could find it easily every time I need it.  It was published early enough that antibiotics that hadn't been invented yet means that conditions that don't even exist are in there, but medicine had advanced far enough that some of the disease mechanisms are understood.
