The allergological problems in selected Polish medical periodicals between World War I and II

Introduction. Between WW I and WW II there was a lot of medical periodicals in Poland devoted to various medical problems of those times, including allergological issues.
The aim of the study. Analysis of the most significant Polish medical periodicals available in those days, with emphasis on papers dealing with allergy, their number, content, type, and author.
Material and methods. Sixteen major Polish periodicals from the WWI-II period collected at the Main Medical Library in Warsaw and the Jagiellonian University Library in Kraków were analysed.
Results. Out of 62460 available articles, 157 (0.25%) were in total or in part devoted to allergies. Seventy one of them were written by foreign authors, while 87 were authored by Polish physicians. The greatest number of Polish papers on allergy (31) appeared in "Polska Gazeta Lekarska" and 28 foreign ones in "Medycyna Współczesna". In "Polska Gazeta Lekarska", the greatest number of articles (156) was devoted to infectious diseases, 57 to circulatory diseases, 52 to skin and digestive system diseases and merely 31 were devoted to the allergies.
Conclusion. In comparison with other medical specialisations, the problems of allergy and allergic diseases were discussed rather rarely. "Polska Gazeta Lekarska" was known as a leading Polish medical periodical of those days. The number of articles published by Polish authors was comparable to that of the foreign ones. The works by Polish researches were mostly original or review papers, while articles by foreign authors were mainly compilations.
