The rise of clinical experience in European medicine has by now been the subject of numerous studies dealing with the process of its emergence since the beginning of the nineteenth century. As regards research on this process in the River Plate area, the historiography has devoted more attention to analysis of the institutional development of medical practice than to local physicians’ creation of the most important works of medical science. Therefore, this edition of the Disertación de la manía aguda (1827), by physician Diego Alcorta, seeks to shed new light on records of the development of clinical medicine in the River Plate área.
