Objectives: To present the unpublished original book on Urological Therapeutics of Dr. Victoriano Molina, a great urologist from Valencia, and to outline his biographical sketch. Methods: We read his treaty on therapeutics and his publications with detail. To elaborate his biography we obtained information from his descendants and the people who worked with him. Results: When he was locked in the besieged Madrid during the Civil war he dedicated his time to write a therapeutics manual for personal use, which when finished became an excellent treaty in which all the urological pathology was gathered with various clinical scenarios, establishing the medical treatment with precise indications, enriched with numerous magistral formulas and preparations from the time. Dr Molina trained with Dr de la Peña and worked in Hospital de la Princesa with Drs. Cifuentes, father and son, and he was included by Dr. Jimenez Diaz in the staff of the Medical Research Institute, center in which he completed his professional career. Conclusion: The treaty of Urological Therapeutics, written in 1938, represents an excellent unpublished urological text, without comparison in the bibliography due to its contents, a manual which could have bécame an adequate consultation manual in any urological office. The author, remembered by his goodness, his knowledge and his dedication to Urology, is discovered thanks to this work as one of the relevant personalities of the Spanish Urology.
