ABSTRACT

According to the testimony of Ptolemy, which we know through Arrian, it has been assumed that Alexander the Great suffered a pneumothorax during his campaign against the Malli. In general, this assumption has been interpreted as a historical fact in medical literature. We consulted the same sources and concluded that it is unlikely that Alexander’s arrow wound had given him a pneumothorax. In addition, we stressed the extra-historical content of classical sources.


Key words: Alexander the Great, Ancient history, Biography, Military medicine, Pneumothorax, Surgery.
