Who was Gaspar Casal?

He was born in Gerona in 1680, and although he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in arts, he worked first as a doctor and later at the service of the Cathedral Chapter in the Principality of Asturias from 1717 to 1751. In Oviedo he became friends with Benito Jerónimo Feijoo, who became He was at that time in his period of greatest prestige. The fame that he developed in these years was echoed in Madrid, where the Court appointed him in 1751 Supernumerary Physician of the Royal Chamber of Fernando VI. He died in Madrid in 1759.

He is considered the “first Spanish epidemiologist”, his great contribution to science was the conceptual change of medicine. He was also the first to describe the so-called evil of the rose.

The description of this disease in his “Natural and Medical History” is the reason for his fame today thanks to the observation, analysis and description that he made of the disease.

Casal correctly related the disease of the rose or pellagra with a deficient diet, whose main component was corn, which in his time constituted the basis of the diet of peasants in the region.
