SCORBUTUS

SCORBUTUS
morbi notum genus, Septentrionalis primum Balthici maris oras qui accolunt, illiusque loca vicina paludosa, infestavit: qui proin eum, ut morbum ἐπιχώριον et ενδήμιον, primi sentiebant, eô prorsus more, quô Aegyptii elephantiasin, Alpini bronchocelem, Americani siphylidem. Angli phthisin, Iudaei leptam, Hispani strumam etc. Is vero tandem neglectâ sede avitâ, longe lateque virulentiam suam diffundens, Daniam occupavit, Holsatiam, Prussiam, Silesiam, Bohemiamque pervagatus, quin et navigia insedit et aeratis inhaerens triremibus, una cum vectoribus deterrima merx in Angliam, Belgium, Lusitaniam, Americamque delata est. Denique et Galliae ac Italiae maritima loca infestans, nec mediterraneis pepercit etc. Vide eo Medicorum filios.
