  • Portal Cirrhosis

    It is well known that Laennec gave cirrhosis its name from the Greek word kirrhos (tawny), in a brief footnote to his treatise De l'auscultation médiate (1819), but the eponym "Laennec's cirrhosis" is rarely used in France. This article explores the reasons why North American physicians commemorate a French chest[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
