Abstract

People with disabilities were generally burdened with a painful fate in ancient times, however in the hospitals was no effective therapy. The hospital of Bátmonostor was founded at late 13th century, The authors examine by morphological, radiological and histological methods 426 complete skeletons excavated from medieval (14th-15th century) cemetery of Bátmonostor (Hungary). Among them 30 cases (7.1%) of bony ankylosis, (24 cases on lower limb and 6 cases on upper limb) was found. Sacroiliacal ankylosis 3 cases, Bechterew's spondylitis ankylopoetica 1 case was seen. Spondylitis tuberculosa and malum Potti 4 cases, and hunchback with other aetiology 2 cases was detected. Beside the cases with ankylosis severe posttraumatic osteomyelitis (7 cases), primary malignant bone tumors (2 cases) and an osteoplastic metastatic tumors (probably prostata carcinoma) was diagnostised. Paleopathologic study of the physically disabled may yield information and insight on the prevalence of crippling disorders. The authors hypothetise, the crippled persons live in hospital to their death.
