One hundred years ago Cruveilhier showed that gastric ulcer was a clinical entity. Before him (in 1793) Matthhew Baillie wrote about it, and patients complaining of it were described in the 16th century. Thus for 300 years something was known about it, this knowledge for 100 years more fully employed, and in the last 25 years most intimately, and yet really nobody knows much of anything about. Someday, somewhere, somebody is going to tells us accurately what peptic ulcers are caused by, and then we are going to know something worth the while about it, and get somewhere with it.
