Medical dictionaries – French

The Académie Nationale de Médecine, founded in 1820, published a dictionary comprising a large number of medical terms and it is regularly updated.

Each full article includes a brief definition, a more encyclopaedic commentary, a reference to the author of the original publication and its date, the etymology of the keywords, the synonym(s) and antonyms, and a reference to other related concepts that can be accessed simply by clicking the arrow.
