Az első világháború járványtörténeti jellegzetességei az Orvosi Hetilap egykorú számai alapján
The Medical Weekly Paper ("Orvosi Hetilap") has been a considerable journal about medicine since 1857 when it was founded by Lajos Markusovszky. The study of issues published under the First World War may open up new perspectives for historians. Articles between 1914 and 1918 can give us a lot of information about wartime weekdays from a sanitary viewpoint. The essay mainly focuses on news and treatises about epidemics which came up in almost every battlefield and hinterland in the war. They may divide into two groups in virtue of epidemiology: acute (cholera, typhus, petechial fever) and chronic (tuberculosis, some venereal diseases).
