    Hippocratic Seasonal Diseases
    By N.S. Gill
    The Hippocratic corpus contains many works on
    specific aspects of medicine, as well as a more
    general work, Aphorisms, containing more than

    Hippocratic practitioners associated with the
    seasons. Hippocratic medicine is linked to the
