Essays on Some Maladies of Angola, first published in 1799, is the result of a diligent and methodological effort by Doctor Azeredo, who observed and treated the most frequent maladies in Angola at the end of the 18th century. It is an innovating study, where the author calls attention to organic, psychosocial, and anthropological factors that imply the conception of medicine as a natural and social science.
