This original dissertation for a medical degree on the subject of pancreatic tumours is by Michael Ernst Ettmuller (1673-1732), the son of the great Leipzig physician of the same name. Michael Sr. (1644-1683) was an extraordinary professor of surgery and anatomy who enjoyed a great reputation as a lecturer and wrote many tracts on medical and chemical subjects.
