  • This may be the first time you have heard of the Thymus, but it has been the most read topic on the Top Doctors website. It is an organ of the immune system located in the chest whose function is to mature T lymphocytes (cells in charge of cellular immunity). In the article, Dr. Jesús Alcaraz Rubio, explains its importance in Hematology.

Tarradellas Bertran, who explains how a specialist in Neurology can help us, what treatments are performed and what have been the advances in this specialty.

This is perianal dermatitis, an inflammation of the skin around the anus causing itching, erosions, bleeding and redness. In the article, Dr. Victoria Delgado Díaz, a renowned proctologist with several awards behind her, explains what causes this ailment and when we should see a specialist.

  • In first place we found a video on the reappearance of varicose veins. In it, Dr. Jaume Julià explains the reasons why this happens and the techniques currently available to treat them. If one thing is clear, he says, it is that nowadays no center can guarantee that varicose veins will be cured definitively.
