El futuro del español como lengua de la medicina
Spanish and its future as language of medicine
Bertha M. Gutiérrez Rodillaa

Resumen

The Spanish medical language has gone through different stages since the publication of the first medical texts in Spanish at the end of the Middle Ages up to today and finds itself nowadays in a difficult position despite the high number of Spanish speakers all around the world. In this paper we aim at, on the one hand, analyzing some of the reasons that have led to and are still responsible for this situation and, on the other hand, we try to highlight the means that Spanish language can count on in order to continue to be a language suitable for communication among specialists in the future.
