Ibn Zuhr

Ibn Zuhr

▪ Spanish Muslim physician
in full  Abū Marwān ʿAbd al-Malik ibn Abī al-ʿAlāʾ Zuhr , also called  Avenzoar  or  Abumeron 
born c. 1090, Sevilla [Spain]
died 1162, Sevilla

      one of medieval Islam's foremost thinkers and the greatest medical clinician of the western caliphate.

      An intensely practical man, Ibn Zuhr disliked medical speculation; for that reason, he opposed the teachings of the Persian master physician Avicenna. In his Taysīr fī al-mudāwāt wa al-tadbīr (“Practical Manual of Treatments and Diet”), later translated into Hebrew and Latin, he described serious pericarditis (inflammation of the membranous sac surrounding the heart) and mediastinal abscesses (affecting the organs and tissues in the thoracic cavity above the diaphragm, excluding the lungs) and outlined surgical procedures for tracheotomy, excision of cataracts, and removal of kidney stones. He also discussed excessive contraction and dilation of the pupil (miosis and mydriasis) and advocated use of the narcotic plant Mandragora for treatment of ocular disease.

      A teacher of the prominent Muslim physician Averroës, Ibn Zuhr had great influence on medical practice in Christian Europe.
