Islam's surgeons were the first pathologists. They fully realized the nature of disease and described a variety of diseases to modern detail. Ibn Zuhr correctly described the nature of pleurisy, tuberculosis and pericarditis. Az-Zahrawi accurately documented the pathology of hydrocephalus (water on the brain) and other congenital diseases. Ibn al-Quff and Ibn an-Nafs gave perfect descriptions of the diseases of circulation. Other Muslim surgeons gave the first accurate descriptions of certain malignancies, including cancer of the stomach, bowel and esophagus. These surgeons were the originators of pathology, not Giovanni Morgagni.

Charles Marshall saw a lot of life, both under the microscope and around it.
Marshall, who died Nov. 12 at age 93, was Group Health Cooperative's first pathologist.
Born in Cowell, South Australia, he came to Seattle in 1957 to join what was then considered a radical new health organization.
