Resumen

PENA SANCHEZ, María Antonia. In memory of Dr. Antonio María Béguez César (1895-1975): discoverer of the family malignant chronic neutropenia with atypical granulations of the leukocytic cells. MEDISAN [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.1, pp.109-117. ISSN 1029-3019.

Dr. Antonio María Béguez César (1895-1975) was a Cuban physician, considered as Father of the Pediatrics in the eastern provincies of his country. He discovered a strange disease in 1933 whose description was spread 10 years later in the Bulletin of the Cuban Society of Pediatrics, as family malignant chronic neutropenia with atypical granulations of the leukocytic cells, although it didn't prevent that another person borrowed the scientific finding that has been known in the medical environment as Chédiak-Higashi syndrome. Although in the first Latin American Day of Hematology Cooperative Studies, taking place in Havana in February, 1973, his finding was recognized, the public silence in this respect remained until the end of last century and first years of the XXI, when already and ever his life and work fully support the long lasting homages that are being devoted to his memory, according to the historical truth and the scientific rigor, and as an example of apology to the physician whose unquestionably own merit was borrowed
